This is my great grandmother's recipe. I've made some alterations for the modern ingredients, but it tastes just like hers. Feel free to experiment!

I was searching for my mother-in-law's recipe for canberry salad and found it here. This is a real favorite for any gathering at any time of the year. Women and kids in particular seem to really enjoy it. You can also make it with cranberries that you have frozen whole in the bag so that it is possible to make this for a summer barbecue or block party. Not just for Christmas! Read More

My great grandmother also made this recipe and I never thought I would see it in someone elses collection. haha My grandmother always added 1 ground navel orange (Sounds strange I know but added it it is wonderful!) and only a cup of grapes that were cut in half. Always a good Christmas recipe! Read More

My mother used to make this for holidays when I was a child. It's an old favorite. After crushing the cranberries in the blender she would also add a cup of grated apple instead of the grapes (it tones down the tart cranberry flavor but grapes would probably do the same). Read More

This is about like my mom's cranberry salad which is our family favorite. Ours is a little different. We only use 1 cup sugar no marshmallows and the whole container of a small cool whip. Delicious! Read More

Very yummy. My grandmother used to make this and it is so good and very forgiving if you want/need to change the ingredients. Read More

This is a must have at holidays. I make my own whipped topping with whipping cream powdered surgar and vanilla to add to the recipe. This is usually one of the favorite salads at holiday time! Very Good! Read More
