"I make this quite often. I use equal parts celery and onion and I stir in jellied cranberry . It's a hit at our house! Add a salad and dinner roll. It's taste is like turkey dinner all over again."

"This recipe really perked up my leftover turkey! It has TONS of flavour and I loved the zing that the cranberries gave it. I served it with some mashed potatoes and veggies and it was like Thanksgiving casserole. I don't like the taste of leftover poultry, so this was a wonderful way to use it up!"
