Cranberry Christmas Salad

This is a recipe from my Mother-in-Love. Before she passed away, she left a hand-written family recipe book for my husband. This recipe is a family holiday favorite and can be used as a salad, dessert, or snack. It's an easy make-ahead. Even folks who don't like cranberries love this - the apples and topping create a sweetness that balances the tartness from the cranberries. Enjoy!
