READY IN: 1hr 5mins

This is a recipe passed down to me from my husbands Great Grandmother. Its come to replace the simple cans of cranberry sauce served at the holidays. So good its almost a desert! The celery sounds odd but it fits in there perfectly. Great make ahead dish!

This is a great cranberry salad! Because there were only 4 of us for Thanksgiving dinner, we adjusted the recipe and used an 8 x 8 pan. We did not add the topping, because of dietary restrictions, and it was very good. I am certain it would be amazing that way, too..
