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.

How To Make cranberry/mandarin orange salad -- no cook

  • 1
    I usually double everything and it produces around a quart.
  • 2
    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.
  • 4
    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.
