This Cranberry Mousse Jello Mold Salad has been a favorite in our family for many years especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I found it in a magazine years ago and credit for this goes to Helen Clement of Hemet, California. I chose to reduce her nutmeg amount from 1/2 to 1/4 teaspoon , which gives it just a tiny hint of nutmeg, you may not even notice it. This jello mold is so delicious! And so pretty! It is a nice contrast on the plate (and palate!) with a meat and gravy meal. Enjoy!
