Tasty Tuesday

We made Aunt Lydia's Cranberry Salad yesterday.   The weather here is hot and humid and what better idea than to make a cold and refreshing yummy jello salad.
To be honest, it took us awhile to find the crushed pineapple.  For some reason, the hoarders keep emptying the shelves of it. We finally found the crushed pineapple at our local Northford Store.   

One 20-oz can crushed pineapple, undrained
Two small packages of raspberry jello
One can whole berry cranberry sauce
One medium Granny Smith apple (mom goofed and bought another kind - oops)
Chopped walnuts (the Turmeric is not part of the ingredients☺)

Drain the pineapple, reserving all liquid in a one quart measuring cup.  Add enough cold water to make three cups.  Pour it into a pot, bring to a boil and remove from heat.  Add jello and stir for two minutes until dissolved.   Put in the frig for thirty minutes. 
Add cranberry sauce and stir well.
Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate for two hours.
Stir in the pineapple, apple and nuts.  Stir gently.
 You really can't tell these are cranberries in here because the raspberry jello is the dominate flavor.  It's so chunky and yummy!
 My turn - my turn!
We will definitely be making this salad again!  Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us, Auntie Lydia!

Love ya lots♥

I've made that salad. It's very good. If you ever use fresh cranberries make sure you put the top on the blender. Cranberries don't look good on the ceiling.

https://amandascookin.com/pineapple-dream-dessert/ My Mum used to make this dessert with crushed pineapple and Cool Whip. It would make a nice treat on a warm day too. Your salad looks yummy.
