Fresh Cranberry Salad

JoSele Swopes


My mother has always made this for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year. We have never really cared for cranberry sauce out of a can. So this is what we do for the holidays. It is great spooned on Turkey, cool and refreshing, what we love to do is later at night have a bowl of it for a snack. I hope you enjoy it. Fresh is best...This is best prepared the night before for chilling and set purposes...
