Food Fun Monday – Cranberry Salad

For years we would open a can of cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving dinner and my mother would be the only one to really enjoy it. A week later we would throw out three quarters of it.

Then we found this yummy recipe and it’s become one of our families traditional Thanksgiving dishes. It’s especially good for the younger set as they tend to love it.

Cranberry Jello Salad

1 lg box of Strawberry – Banana jello.
1 can jellied cranberry sauce.
ripe banana’s – as many as you want
Cool Whip

Make the jello using only the hot water ingredient; this decreases the liquid by half.
Mix the jello, cranberry sauce and bananas in the blender and blend well.

optional – grate a medium apple (I use a sweet one like red delicious) and stir into the mix

Pour into a 9×13 pan over night.

Top with cool whip. For a festive looking dish you can garnish it with mint leaves. Or mint leaf & red candy for a holly look.

With the holiday’s coming up we’d love to have some guest bloggers post their favorite recipes. You can email us by clicking on Contact Us above and we’ll set it up with you.

  1. yummy! I HAVE to try this!

  2. Sounds like a good way to use up those ingredients, Lavada. We both love bananas in our family, too.

  3. And, it’s easy. EASY is the key word for me with recipe’s. I’m a very lazy cook.

    Jan, Welcome to Over The Backyard Fence. I’m looking forward to Wednesdays blog and getting to know you better.

    Barb, I’m ready for lunch, brunch or whatever again.

  4. Yum! And, since I’m on a “food modification” program right now, it looks extra yummy. 🙂

  5. This is so good–we got it from Lavada a couple of years ago and
    everyone keeps asking again for the recipe. I copied and sent it
    to all of them.
