Cranberry Salad

Today I decided to make a salad that my family traditionally makes on Thanksgiving. It is a fall dish, but I think is a very good "transition" dish into winter. The toppings above are what I put into the salad. From left: dried pineapple, dried cranberries, dried dates, dried ginger, dried blueberries, different kind of dried cranberries, maple walnuts, dried Bing cherries.

I started with about a cup of pomegranate seeds.

Then about a cup and half of cranberries. Add them to the Cuisinart.

And they come out looking like this.

Add the pomegranates and then add the lovely toppings from before and a little sugar to taste.

And the final product is really pretty with everything showing through. I hope that you can enjoy this thanksgiving-ish side dish even though it's a little late for this thanksgiving!

Take care the rest of the weekend :)



  1. oh I love that you used pomegranate seeds. Such a good combo!

  2. My MIL made something similar to this for our Thanksgiving lunch and it was FABULOUS. I love the addition of the pomegranate seeds! I think this is fabulous for any time of the year. :)

  3. yum! I love cranberries and pomegranates - this looks perfect!
