  4. Add the ice and stir until it melts.

  5. Pour the gelatin into a bowl or mold and place in the fridge to thicken, about an hour.

Recipe Notes

Serve the cranberry-orange salad as a side for a Thanksgiving holiday menu. This cranberry-orange salad can be used as an alternative to cranberry sauce if you leave out the nuts and cottage cheese.
