Few foods capture the flavor of the season like cranberries, and this makeover took a holiday favorite and made it even better! You'll love the flavor of cranberry, apple and pineapple covered in a sweet and creamy dressing. Better still, it's only 2 grams of fat per serving! —Alexandra Lypecky, Dearborn, Michigan
