ice cubes
cups fresh or frozen cranberries
unpeeled seedless orange, cut into 1-inch pieces
Additional fresh cranberries, orange slices and mint sprigs, if desired

Add ice cubes; stir until ice is completely melted and gelatin begins to thicken. Place in freezer 10 to 15 minutes, stirring once or twice, until slightly thickened.
  3. Meanwhile, place 2 cups cranberries and the orange in food processor. Cover and process until coarsely chopped; set aside.
  4. Remove gelatin from freezer. Stir cranberry mixture and pineapple into gelatin. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes until firm. Garnish with cranberries, orange slices and mint. Serve with Creamy Topping.

Betty's Helpful Tip
Canned pineapple is the best option for this easy molded fruit salad. The gelatin will not set up if you use fresh or frozen pineapple.
