Festive Cranberry Salad is so pretty and easy to make. This is a great salad to serve on special occasions like Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I like that it can be made the night before. I”m all about doing everything I can ahead of time when it comes to entertaining.
Of course, you don’t have to wait until a special occasion to serve Festive Cranberry Salad. It’s a great addition to any meal. It’s light pink in color – hard to photograph, but delicious to eat.
I love that this salad is not overly sweet and pairs perfectly with the ham I always prepare on Easter Sunday. You do need to store leftovers in the freezer since this is a frozen salad.
Congealed salads have been a thing in the south for as long as I can remember. No potluck is complete without some type of congealed salad.
