Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Salad

Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Salad

Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Salad is a variation on our Lemon Gelatin Fruit Salad. I chose not to refer to this variation as a fruit salad because, frankly, there wasn’t a lot of fruit in this combination. The whole berry cranberries just seem to disappear among the cottage cheese, and while this still has some texture, it wasn’t enough to call it a fruit salad.

I love how easy these gelatin salads are to prepare. I almost always have cottage cheese in the refrigerator and frozen whipped topping in the freezer. Since I have chosen to do 30 days of gelatin, I also have no shortage of gelatin in the pantry.

What do you need to prepare this salad?

From the Pantry

  • Raspberry Gelatin
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Marshmallows

From the Refrigerator

  • Cottage Cheese
  • Whipped Topping

We loved the combination of cranberries and raspberry gelatin. In fact, this Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Salad may be my new favorite combination, replacing the Lemon Gelatin Fruit Salad. Even Baker’s Man, who eschews gelatin desserts, ate more than one serving of this one.
