Festive Cranberry-Pineapple Salad

Recipe Ingredients


  1. Drain pineapple, reserving liquid in 1-quart liquid measuring cup. Remove 1 tablespoon of the crushed pineapple; set aside for garnish.
  2. Add enough cold water to reserved liquid to measure 3 cups; pour into large saucepan. Bring to boil; remove from heat.
  3. Add gelatin; stir at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
  4. Add cranberry sauce; stir until well blended. (Note: Due to the presence of whole berries in the cranberry sauce, the gelatin mixture will not be smooth.)

  6. Stir in remaining pineapple, the apples and walnuts; stir gently until well blended.
  7. Pour into medium serving bowl.
  8. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
  9. Top with reserved crushed pineapple just before serving.
