Cranberry Salad

I love, love, love cranberries. I love the sweetness and tart together SO delicious. This is a really yummy salad to try for the holidays. Not only festive but pretty as well. Don't be afraid to try this if you don't like cranberries, because it has a lot of other ingredients with great flavors as well.

1 pkg. (3 oz) raspberry flavored gelatin (Jell-O)

1 can (16 OZ) whole-berry cranberry sauce

1 Granny smith apple, diced small

1 large orange, peeled/seeded, and cut into 1/2 in. pieces

3/4 c. chopped walnuts

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

dash ground cloves (optional, but I use it)

Fresh whipping cream or Cool-Whip (optional)

1-Prepare gelatin according to package directions in an 8x8x2 baking dish

2-Stir cranberries, apple, orange, walnuts, cinnamon and clove into gelatin mixture

3- Refrigerate over night or until firm.

*I always top my salad with fresh whipping cream right before serving

*Cute idea: after you have added you whipped topping, slice up another apple, and orange and place in a decorative fashion on top of your salad for a little extra garnish! Very pretty!
