We'll admit it: We wouldn't want to revisit many of the congealed salads we published in the sixties, but rediscovering this jewel of a recipe was like finding a timeless dress at a vintage store.

Makes 6 to 8 servings


+ Add To Shopping List
1 (8-oz.) can crushed pineapple in syrup
Boiling water
1 (3-oz.) package raspberry-flavored gelatin
1 (14-oz.) can whole-berry cranberry sauce

1 teaspoon orange zest


Hands-on: 15 Minutes
Total: 3 Hours, 45 Minutes

Drain syrup from pineapple into a 2-cup measuring cup. Add boiling water to equal 1 1/4 cups. Transfer to a large bowl. Dissolve gelatin in hot syrup mixture; chill 1 hour and 30 minutes or until partially set. Fold in cranberry sauce, oranges, zest, and crushed pineapple. Pour into 1 (4-cup) mold, and chill 2 hours or until set.
