I made this today for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I used extra creamy Cool Whip with the softened cream cheese to lessen "watering" of whip cream and for ease of making ahead. I also chopped several celery stalks to add texture as was suggested by another Reviewer. I also used Raspberry Jello. This Salad is fabulous. I had to add a bit of orange juice to the fresh cranberries to get them processed. I used heavy pulp and I have found a new BEST SALAD EVER!


This is the best cranberry salad ever! I make it exactly how the recipe states and have gotten rave reviews from everyone, including my dad's family who is the ultimate food critic. Try this, you won't be let down.


Oh my goodness! This is the most delicious cranberry salad recipe I have ever had! I have made many different cranberry recipes over the years, but this one stands a head & shoulders above the rest. I used raspberry for the jello, & since I had about a cup of glazed pecans left in the frige, I beat 'em up in the food processor & dumped them in. Delish!
