Fresh Cranberry Pecan Salad

This salad is my daughter and mother's favorite Thanksgiving recipe. I used to make it every year for the teachers at my children's school--they RAVED over it. After Thanksgiving, I like to have it as a snack over plain yogurt. It is absolutely to die for!

  4. Mix cranberries, sugar, raisins, pecans, pineapple tidbits with juice and orange pieces all together.

Well, I was skeptical when I came across this but wanted something different for Thanksgiving leftovers as my usual cooked cranberry sauce recipe was all eaten. This was delicious and the more it sat in the fridge, the tastier it got. It's now leftovers from Christmas time and I find myself making a second batch. Thanks for the recipe-it's a keeper.
