cranberry salad

a recipe by

I like to add a new dish every year to the Thanksgiving table. Some become highly requested repeats and some are never seen or heard from again. My sister-in-law suggested this one. This refreshing treat is in the first category. A little tangy, a little sweet and lots of crunch. Now it's on the table for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I hope you like it as well as my family does.
