Grammie's Cranberry Salad

Kim Biegacki


My Grammie (Roberta Campbell) made this every Thanksgiving and Christmas and the family just loved it. It is a really easy recipe to make with only 5 ingredients. It also is great with the leftover turkey or ham you have after the holidays. Now, it is my turn to make the cranberry sauce and I do it with pleasure as I reminisce of days gone by.
