I can certainly see why Carri looked forward to this salad. Fantastic flavors all melding together to create a party for the palate. The holidays are rapidly approaching and I always like to tes...

I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving and it is now my favorite. The combination of flavors was perfect -- not too sweet and not too tart. I wasn't sure if I'd like everything processed so much...

I made this exactly as written for our Thanksgiving dinner at work. Everyone raved about it! I will be making it again next week for Thanksgiving at home.

I am not a cranberry fan, but I loved this salad. I used cherry gelatin instead of raspberry, which did make it a little sweeter.

I can't quit eating this! Delish. I didn't have any carrots so I used an apple. I also didn't have any pineapple. It was still delicious. Next time I will try it with pineapple. Thanks!

This is pretty good. Wasn't a real big hit at my Ham dinner though. I suggest adding less Pinneapple and it works better with it. I enjoyed the taste and texture myself however.

It's good, but none of the kids ate it cause it looked like mushed-up brains.... I will use it for their halloween party.
