“This is my favorite Thanksgiving dish! The sweetness is a nice contrast to the saltiness of the turkey. The walnuts and apples give a nice texture, but make sure they are chopped small enough. The mayo seems like a strange addition, but you don't taste it, and it improves the texture of the cream cheese. Enjoy!” - by khjones

- Pour juice from crushed pineapple and cranberry sauce in a measuring cup and add enough water to equal 2 cups of liquid; bring to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from heat and dissolve raspberry gelatin in the liquid. Pour gelatin into a bowl and refrigerate until partly set, about 45 minutes.
- Beat cream cheese with mayonnaise in a bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy; gradually beat partially set gelatin into cream cheese mixture. Gently fold 1 cup whipped topping into the mixture. Stir crushed pineapple, cranberry sauce, apple, and walnuts into gelatin mixture. Transfer to a serving bowl and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours. Serve frosted with 1/2 cup whipped topping, or as desired.

"Instead of mayonnaise, I used sour cream. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. At the last minute, I folded in half of a small bag of mini marshmallows. I made no other changes. Instead of letting i..." See moret set up in a serving bowl, I spread it in a 9x13 baking pan. Once it set, I spread the top with Cool Whip. This is to DIE FOR. We all loved it."
