Healthy Cranberry Relish Salad

Since it’s my first time back to the blog since the weekend, let me first start out by saying…We Are…


Wahoo!  After an at times stressful, nail-biting, almost get a noise complaint from your neighbors type of game, I can proudly say that The Thundering Herd are CUSA Champions!  I was freaking out, jumping up and down on the couch and running around my apartment like a crazy person after the W.  Not to mention, I was riding such an adrenaline high that there was a solid thirty minutes of my life where I was about to drive up to Huntington for the night {both Jimmy and Andrew went up for the weekend}.  Long story short I didn’t go, but I’m still so proud of the Herd.  Ready for the Boca Bowl on the 23rd…

Today I wanted to share a healthy holiday family recipe, passed down from my grandmother.  It’s one of my favorite holiday sides, and extremely simply to make.  There isn’t a holiday where I don’t remember this being on the table.  If you’re not a cranberry person, this thing will change your perspective the festive fruit.

\\ 1 bag of cranberries, washed
\\ 4-6 {organic} apples, diced
\\ 1 can of unsweetened, crushed pineapple
\\ 3-4 cups of Red Seedless grapes, halved*
\\ 3/4 cup-1 cup of walnuts, chopped*

*amount adjusted to your own personal preference


1.  In a food processor, grind cranberries until fine.
2.  Chop apples and halve or quarter the grapes.
3.  Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

See!  Super simple, and not to mention delicious.

And here’s a much prettier picture of the salad…

This holiday season, make sure that this side makes it to your table.   This is just one of my grandmother’s many amazing recipes.  She was such an incredible woman {and not to mention cook} and I’m proud to be able to share this with you all today.

Happy Holidays, from my family to yours.

What are some of your favorite holiday sides?  Any family traditions out there?
