Ambrosia Waldorf Salad

 Ambrosia Waldorf Salad
A light, lovely pink salad, this recipe puts a different spin on traditional Waldorf salad. It is super served with roast turkey or baked ham. People always go back for seconds. My family didn't think they liked cranberries until they tried this sweet crunchy salad. -Janet Smith, Smithton, Missouri
