Cranberry salad is only 3 ingredients and is delicious.

My whole family loves cranberries and cranberry sauce just about any way you fix it. You can also add chopped apples or use pineapple chunks in place of the mandarin oranges.  Coconut is good, too.   We like it with just the three ingredients best and I don’t just make this during the holidays.  We like this as a salad anytime with a meal.  If this is not on the table at Thanksgiving and Christmas, we think the meal is not a holiday meal!  This salad is certainly a very easy addition to your holiday table.  Cranberries are so good for you, too!  If you want to make your own cranberry sauce, check out my recipe for homemade cranberry sauce.

Cranberry salad is wonderful with any meal.

2 (15 ounce) cans whole cranberries in sauce

2 (14 ounce) cans mandarin oranges, drained

1 cup chopped walnuts

Mix 3 ingredients together. Makes about 8 servings.
