Mom's Cranberry Salad

Okay, we've been trying to get this up for years.  I'm now delivering.  You're welcome.

1 box (3 oz.) orange Jell-O (It's Alive!)
1 envelope Knox gelatin
1 1/4 cup boiling water
8 oz. can crushed pineapple
12-16 oz. fresh or frozen cranberries
1 orange, peeled and pith removed
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup fresh celery, chopped

1. Dissolve gelatin and Jell-O in boiling water.
2. In your food processor (or blender), chop pineapple, cranberries and orange until all are in very small pieces.  (Do no liquefy.)
3. Add walnuts, celery and gelatin mixture to processor and pulse process briefly until mixture is desired consistency.  (A little pulsing goes a VERY long way.)
4. Chill until set - a few hours.

This yields 12 side dish servings, each of which have about 130 calories.
