Cranberry Jello Salad:

With Thanksgiving coming up this week, I wanted to share a "festive" recipe with you!
One of my #1 favorite foods is cranberries - particularly cranberry sauce! I could easily eat a whole can by myself and be perfectly fine with that. And pretty much the rest of my family is fine with that too, because there's only a couple of us who like cranberry things. A friend gave me this recipe a few years ago and I just loved it! I couldn't believe how easy it was and how pretty it looked! I hope you give it a try! Even if you don't like cranberries, because the people in my family who HATE cranberries, love this dish!!!

1 can cranberry sauce, can be smooth or whole berry sauce
2 pks. strawberry gelatin
2 cups boiling water

In a blender or with an emersion blender, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add cranberry sauce and blend until smooth. Pour into a serving dish or bowl. Chill for at least 8 hours - the longer the better. There will be a foamy pink layer on top of the gelatin, as you can tell from the picture; it just does this on it's own some how, but it's very yummy and it looks pretty!!

-You could use raspberry or cranberry gelatin, if you prefer....they are just harder to find sometimes!
-This bad part about this, is it really does take forever to chill. I try to allow 8 hours at the very least.
