-Cranberries aren't just for Thanksgiving. You'll love the way they kick up the flavor in this creamy salad. This is definitely not your typical gelatin mold. It's a delicious blend of bright fruit flavors. To get the salad started, you'll dissolve 3 ounces of raspberry gelatin and 3 ounces of lemon gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water. Look at those colors. Here's a great tip for you. The way to know that it's all dissolved is to use a metal spoon, lift it up and when there's no more little flex in there, you're good to go. Now, to make this nice and creamy, whisk in some sour cream. Make sure you get it all incorporated. Now, stir in 2 cups of raspberry sherbet. This cools down the boiling water. Keep on stirring the sherbet until it completely melts. You're gonna want it to get partially set. It'll look just about like this. Now, if it's not at the place you want it, you can pop it in the fridge for a little while until it gets to the right consistency. Add a cup of cranberry relish. You can make your own or just buy a jar. This one's really great because it's a cranberry orange flavor which hoes nicely with the citrus flavors n the gelatin. I'll mix this altogether. Now, this is the fun part, is when you get to choose your jell-O mold. There are so many different options out there. But if you wanna make it really easy on yourself, just use an 8-inch square pan. That way, you can just cut out the squares and serve. Today, I'm gonna use a fairly traditional mold. It's a 5-cup capacity. So now I'm just gonna fill it. There we go. Then, cover and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before you un-mold it. When you're ready to serve your salad, here's a really fun idea for a pretty little garnish. Take some cranberries, get them a little bit wet and then toss them with some sugar. Here we go. That looks so pretty and festive Now, to un-mold your salad, simply take a plate, put it on top and invert. Garnish with your cranberries and a little fresh mint. Doesn't that look gorgeous? It is a sweet finish to your Creamy Cranberry Raspberry Salad.
