Festive Cranberry Salad

This week’s featured recipe is Festive Cranberry Salad!  This delightful, tangy and refreshing salad was one like my Mom prepared during the holidays when I was growing up and it brings back so many warm memories of family dinners and special times!  I’ve carried on that tradition with my children and now with my grandchildren, by making sure this memorable salad is on the table during our holiday meals!  I’m excited to share it with you all and hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving!  Lisa
