Cranberry Salad

Natalie Loop


Never was a fan of cranberries until a couple of years ago. But now I seem to like them especially around the holidays.
I made this one Thanksgiving for my mother who is a fan of cranberries. My sister and I take turns each year alternating Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now whichever holiday I get to cook that year my mom reminds me to make this for our holiday meal.
