Since our home state is a top producer of cranberries, I've nicknamed this tasty recipe "Wisconsin Salad." It features sweetened dried cranberries, which our family produces from the fresh crop we harvest every fall. —Cheryl Urban, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

"Very easy and very good! Made it for Thanksgiving... nice change from the other more 'heavy' dishes. I used red onions and bacon bits."

"This was good, but a bit too sweet. Next time i might tweek it and use less sugar and maybe add some vinegar for tang."

"Very good, but just a tad sweet for me so I might cut back on the sugar. Would definitely make again though since it was tasty and easy!"

"Excellant. I make a very similar salad that is always a hit. Eliminate the bacon (though it pains me to say that, as I love bacon), and add a cup of strawberry slices. Can use cranberries or dried cherries, depending on cost and availability. Very tasty, and with all the green and red it's festive for a holiday buffet."
