Every year for Thanksgiving, my mom made a wonderfully tasty cranberry salad. Oh, how I loved that stuff. It was so much more appetizing than the jellied cranberry stuff they sliced up at the school cafeteria (you could still see the rings from the can!)
Finally, last year I asked for the recipe and was delighted by how simple it was to make!
The funny thing is, the other day I was at my mother-in-law’s house and she was excited about some Cranberry Celebration Salad she had purchased on sale at a local supermarket because it is usually quite expensive. I took one bite and realized it was the same thing as my mom’s salad! The best part of this is that I’m able to pick up all the ingredients I need for this festive salad at Aldi right now for super cheap!
So, if you like a little tart and a little sweet, and a whole lot of cranberry, try out this yummy holiday recipe (we make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas and typically double this recipe).
Cranberry Celebration Salad
1 can jellied cranberry sauce
1 can whole cranberries
