Cranberry Raspberry Salad

I LOVE congealed salads.  My grandmother used to make the best ones and I guess she started me out early loving them.

Not many of my family members eat cranberry sauce with their turkey so this year I made this salad and thought I might be able to "sneak" a little cranberry into their meal!  I think I just may have succeeded with a couple of them!

This one is perfect for the holidays because of its pretty bright red color!

1 can ( 20 oz.) crushed pineapple, in juice
2 pkgs. (3 oz. each) Raspberry flavored gelatin
1 can (16 oz.) whole berry cranberry sauce
2/3 cup chopped walnut pieces
1 apple, chopped 

Drain pineapple, reserving the juice.  Add enough water to the reserved juice to measure 2 1/2 cups of liquid; pour into saucepan. Bring to boil.

Pour boiling mixture over gelatin mixes in large bowl.

Stir 2 approximately 2 minutes or until gelatin is completely dissolved.

Stir in pineapple and whole berry cranberry sauce.

Add chopped walnuts and diced apple.

Stir until well-combined.

Pour into 13" x 9" glass dish or can also make in 24 paper-lined muffin cups.
