The reputation of this tasty relish goes way beyond your Thanksgiving dinner plate. It’s great with poultry and pork, and will even perk up a ho-hum deli sandwich on-the-fly. —Melode Weiner, Plymouth, California

Friends who own a cranberry bog treated us to freshly harvested cranberries. They were so pretty and tasty that I was determined to use them for something besides plain cranberry relish. I started out with a basic cranberry/orange relish and worked with it until I came up with this recipe. I've found that even folks who don't particularly care for plain cranberries seem to "relish" this side dish.
SO MUCH time and effort went into preparing meals for our large family that it was a real bonus to find a recipe with a shortcut. This salad was one of them.
The dish became part of a special meal our family enjoyed during the holidays. I recall lots of second helpings being requested, but not many leftovers.
