This slightly different cranberry salad has been served daily in a locally favorite "home-style" restaurant. It is among the most requested of their delicious recipes. Most of the ingredients are usually on hand in many kitchens.

I made this for the extended family when they came to visit for Father's Day. My son-in-law gobbled it up and he's a picky eater. My husband loved it as well. I made it as posted but I didn't bother to wait for the mixture to come to room temp. I mixed it up, except for the nuts, then I removed a little bit for the non-nut eaters. I put it in the refrigerator and served it the next day to rave reviews. It will become a staple for family dinners, I'm sure. I may have to double it next time so we can have some leftovers!
