This recipe was passed down through my mother's mother. It has been on every Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner table as far back as I can remember. They both used a meat grinder to mix these ingredients together. Today, I use the food processor. Enjoy-

How to Make Cranberry Salad


  1. If you use a meat grinder:

    If using a food processor:

  2. I buy cranberries during the holiday season and freeze. This is a wonderful salad to make all year long.
