I saw this recipe on our local news around Thanksgiving a few years ago, and had to try is delicious! I included chill time in cook time.

I love all kinds of cranberry sauces, & this one is right in there, what with the inclusion of mandarin oranges & ginger ~ Really, really tasty that way! This recipe is very much a keeper in my book & I look forward to making this 'salad' again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
