FAVORITE AMISH CRANBERRY SALAD
Use sugar-free strawberry and raspberry jello instead of regular jello to cut down on the carbs and points. You will need one 0.3-ounce box of each flavor, which has zero points
- Use a sugar substitute, such as erythritol, stevia, or monk fruit, instead of white sugar to reduce the calories and points. You will need about 1/4 cup of sugar substitute, which has zero points
- Use fresh or frozen cranberries instead of canned cranberries to avoid added sugar and preservatives. You will need about 2 cups of cranberries, which has zero points
- Use fresh or canned pineapple in juice instead of syrup to lower the sugar and points. You will need about 1 1/2 cups of pineapple, which has zero points
- Use unpeeled apples of any variety, such as Granny Smith, Fuji, or Gala. You will need about 4 medium apples, which has zero points
- Use a fresh orange, peeled and chopped.. You will need about 1/2 cup of orange, which has zero points
- In a large bowl, whisk together the strawberry and raspberry jello with 3 cups of boiling water until dissolved. Then add 1 cup of cold water and stir. Refrigerate until slightly thickened, about 1 hour.
- In a food processor or blender, chop the cranberries until finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the sugar substitute. Set aside.
- In the same food processor or blender, chop the apples until finely shredded. You do not need to peel them. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with some lemon juice to prevent browning. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, chop the orange until finely diced. Drain the excess juice. Set aside.
- In another small bowl, drain the pineapple and reserve the juice for another use. Set aside.
- When the jello is slightly thickened, stir in the cranberry mixture, apple mixture, orange, and pineapple. Mix well to combine.
- Pour the salad into a 9×13-inch baking dish and spread evenly. Refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours or overnight.
- Cut into 12 pieces and enjoy!
I hope this helps you make a delicious and low-point salad.
