Frozen Cranberry Salad Recipe

Frozen Cranberry Salad Recipe

I grew up in rural northwestern Montana, where my three sisters and I made meals and prepared food for 4-H contests. I've always loved cooking, and as the administrator of a retirement residence, I enjoy planning special events.

"I had something similar years ago so discovering this recipe was a real treat. I omitted the nuts to suit my family's tastes and added a small can of mandarin oranges I drained then diced up. I also cut the recipe in half as this makes a lot. It is tasty and very pretty when served as well."

"My mother made a similar frozen cranberry salad when I was a child in the 1950s, so when I saw this one I knew I had to try it. Oh boy! Memories flooded back. It is so good! I managed easily to half the recipe because this one makes a lot."
