Cast your vote for Cranberry Salad

Cranberry salad is a great fall food. It makes an excellent addition to holiday meals or just as a side item to roasted poultry. It is a congealed salad packed full of nutrients and antioxidents. This salad recipe combines the sweet taste of pineapple with the tartness of cranberries for an amazing taste sensation.

      Yes 2patricias, the nuts add a little crunch, which I tend to like in my food. It is just a little extra added oomph. Thanks for visiting my page and giving me positive feedback. Hope to see you back here again.

      The nuts must give this an interesting texture. I've voted this interesting, and I am adding it to my Recipe Index for HubPages.

      Thanks Carol. Sounds like a great substitute for sugar. Xylitol is great in sugar free candies and gum, so I know it would be great in this too. :)

      My son is a vegetarian and won't eat jello, but I make it with just the crushed pineapple, cranberries, and serve it with no or low fat cool whip and it's still nice for the holidays, and a healthy snack. A whole cup of sugar though, yikes! I don't need any.
