CRANBERRY SALAD WITH MAYONNAISE CREAM

This is a recipe that was served many years ago at a sorority meeting in my hometown when I was a kid.  It was so popular the recipe was printed in the newspaper so the lady who made it (Mrs. West)could share it with everyone.

1 cup raw cranberries, ground
1 cup sugar
1 pkg lemon gelatin
1 cup hot water
1 cup crushed pineapple, drain and save syrup
1 cup pineapple syrup
1/2 cup English walnut pieces
1 cup chopped celery

Combine ground cranberries and sugar.  Dissolve gelatin in hot water; add the syrup.  Chill until partially set.  Add the cranberry mixture, pineapple, walnuts, and celery.  Pour into an oiled 9-inch square pan or dish.  Chill until firm.  Cut in squares.  Serve on crisp lettuce leaves or curly endive.  Pass the mayonnaise cream - recipe below.
