This salad is a tradition in my husband’s family. When I first heard about it I was not to sure!! I mean, who puts together saltine crackers with whipped cream and cranberries?? Once I tasted it though, I was hooked!! Not only does it taste amazing; it also looks stunning on your holiday table!! When you make it, the smell of fresh cranberries cooking adds to the holiday feel as well as turning your stove red speckled!! So turn on the Christmas music and lets make some yummy salad!!
Holiday Cranberry Salad
2 pounds fresh or frozen cranberries
Cook in small amount of water on low till berries are cooked through
Put through food mill. If you do not have one of these you can mash through a sieve.
You will now have cranberry sauce add 3/4 cup of sucanot or coconut sugar
Crush in blender, 1 box organic saltine crackers (I use 1 box Late July)
Whip 1 1/2 pints whipping cream till stiff and add vanilla and honey to taste
Layer in pretty glass bowl starting with cranberry sauce, whipped cream, cracker crumbs repeating with whipped cream!!
This can be made the day before and stored in fridge!!
