This is one of my Meamaw's recipes for the holidays. It's great for Christmas and Thanksgiving and has been what I've looked forward to during the holidays since I was a little girl. It's also EASY! Hint: make this recipe a day before you serve it so it has time to set.

I can certainly see why Carri looked forward to this salad. Fantastic flavors all melding together to create a party for the palate. The holidays are rapidly approaching and I always like to test recipes on my family before making for dinner guests. My family says this is a keeper! Read More

I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving and it is now my favorite. The combination of flavors was perfect -- not too sweet and not too tart. I wasn't sure if I'd like everything processed so much (I used a food processor) but the texture was fine even though the only identifiable ingredient was a few bits of fresh cranberries. The crunch was still there. The only change I made was that I zested both oranges before peeling/seeding and threw the zest into the food processor. I will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

I made this exactly as written for our Thanksgiving dinner at work. Everyone raved about it! I will be making it again next week for Thanksgiving at home. Read More

I can't quit eating this! Delish. I didn't have any carrots so I used an apple. I also didn't have any pineapple. It was still delicious. Next time I will try it with pineapple. Thanks! Read More

I am not a cranberry fan but I loved this salad. I used cherry gelatin instead of raspberry which did make it a little sweeter. Read More

This is pretty good. Wasn't a real big hit at my Ham dinner though. I suggest adding less Pinneapple and it works better with it. I enjoyed the taste and texture myself however. Read More
