    Annacia's Note:

    Use hors d'oeuvre cutters to cut the cranberry sauce into tiny stars or other shapes to give this salad even more pizzazz. As lovely in the summer as it is for theThanksgiving/Christmas seasons.

      I have no hors d'oeurve cutters, and thought I could free-hand some shapes....I think I overestimated my gifts! LOL! The cute shapes are missing, but everything else is there in this salad. This has everything I love in a salad....only thing I might throw in is some glazed or roasted pecans. Really enjoyed this fresh tasting salad for my lunch yesterday. Thanks for sharing! Made for Photo Tag!

      YUM! Delicious salad! At first I thought there might be a little too much vinegar after first tasting it but it really mellowed out after just a few minutes. All the components go together beautifully. A great way to use up some leftovers. Thanks for posting!
