Cranberry/Mandarin Orange Salad -- No Cook

Gary Hancq


This is a sweet/tart adjunct to the "Bird" on Turkey Day.

It's a change of pace from "Mom's Thanksgiving Cranberry Salad" that I posted some time ago. I've carried on Mom's Tradition for Family Thanksgiving by making Mom's every year since her passing in 1986.

I also provide this tasty treat.

This one is Simple and Sure to Please. You'll pucker a little while enjoying it.

10 to 16 small servings


25 Min


1 pkg
8 oz. fresh cranberries
1 can(s)
8 oz to 11 oz mandarin oranges
1/3 c
sugar white
1 tsp
cinnamon ground
1/3 tsp
nutmeg ground (optional)
1 1/2 Tbsp
sweet white wine (optional) i used moscato

Directions Step-By-Step

I usually double everything and it produces around a quart.
Wash and rinse Cranberries and cull any undesirables. This is a no-cook raw Cranberry Delight.
In food processor or chopper mince cranberries to fine grain.
In large bowl combine minced Cranberries, Mandarin Orange slices cut in quarters, Sugar, Cinnamon and optional Nutmeg and White Wine.
I make this two or three days in advance to allow the flavors to meld. It's a great compliment, as well, to that cold Turkey Sandwich or hot Turkey Sandwich smothered with gravy. Enjoy.
