Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad

Cranberry Mousse Salad_comp

 Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad has been a favorite in our family for many years especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I found it in a magazine years ago so proper credit for the recipe goes to Helen Clement of Hemet, California. I only chose to reduce her nutmeg amount from 1/2 to 1/4 teaspoon , which gives it just a tiny hint of nutmeg, you may not even notice it. This jello mold is so delicious! And so pretty! It is a nice contrast on the plate (and palate!) with a meat and gravy meal.   

Along with Laura, Amy, Bill, myself and others, it just may become a “must have dish” for you at holiday dinners!     Enjoy! 

serves: 20

INGREDIENTS:

(6-ounce) package strawberry-flavored gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 (16-ounce) can whole cranberry sauce
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup pecans

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a large bowl, dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water. Set aside.
2. Drain the can of crushed pineapple in a sieve over a bowl, saving the juice. Set aside the crushed pineapple and add all the pineapple juice to the gelatin.
3. Stir in the whole cranberry sauce, lemon juice, lemon peel, and nutmeg.
4. Chill it in the refrigerator uncovered for about 1 and 1/2 hours, or until the mixture thickens.
5. With a rubber spatula, fold in the sour cream, crushed pineapple, and pecans.
6. Pour the mixture into a glass serving bowl, a Tupperware ring mold, or a greased or sprayed 9-cup decorative mold. 
7. Chill it in the refrigerator until set, at least 2 hours, then unmold it onto a serving plate if you used a decorative mold.
