Very good, everyone loved it! I would remind other cooks to make sure to use room temperature sour cream or it will curdle and use a whisk to completely blend the sour cream in.

This is just delicious! Very fresh tasting. My kids loved it. We couldn't find black cherry jello so we used cherry and it was so good! This is a keeper for sure.



I made it for Thanksgiving and it was voted the best cranbery jello salad I have ever made (I try a new one every year). Kids don't seem to like the nuts but all adults loved it!
