Colleen’s cranberry salad

Giving thanks to the Lord, our family and our friends. Be safe and be kind. 

If you follow my recipes at all you know I am always reinventing the wheel so to speak. Again, I have altered an old recipe to make it even better…..I think anyway. Super easy and you probably already have this stuff on hand for Thanksgivings dinner. I am even thinking of making this throughout the year, it is light and full of flavor. 

  • 1 bag cranberries, washed and drained
  • 2 oranges cut out the pulp, no rind or skin: BUT save one sliver of rind.
  • 2 stalks celery finely chopped
  • 1 honeycrisp Apple finely chopped
  • 1 small can crushed pineapple drained ( I had hunks and blended it for a minute)
  • 11/2 cup of sugar

In a processor of your choice chop cranberries and orange pieces INCLUDING THE LITTLE RIND PIECE. Add sugar mix well. Place in a sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Stir and boil 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. In a large mixing bowl add chopped celery and apple then pinapple. Mix well. When the cranberry mixture is cool add to the celery and apples, mix  again then put into your serving container, refrigerator over night. 

I am thinking you might get away with a cup of sugar but not sure if it will set up as well. You can add finely chopped walnuts if desired. 

As always enjoy……..and happy Thanksgiving to you all.
