This was a very good base recipe. I didn't add sour cream, and I only had sugar free strawberry and surar free orange jello. I used them both and they tasted great! I also used a can of crushed pinapple and substituted some of the cold water with the pineapple juice I drain from the can. It was the favorite side this thanksgiving. Everyone loved it including my two yr old son. There were no leftovers.


Fantastic recipe!! I changed a few things though. I omitted the carrots and pecans. I used cranberry and raspberry gelatin. Other than that this was a huge hit at my Thanksgiving. It has the PERFECT amount of sweetness and tartness. Even my 80 year old grandmother that only likes canned cranberry sauce gobbled this right up.


THIS WAS AWESOME! ive used this recipe for like 2 yrs and everyone has loved it!
