Day 7 of 25 Recipes of Christmas: Frozen Cranberry SaladPosted: December 7, 2006
This unusual recipe was given to me by sweet elderly lady who was in a Bible study with me years ago. She served this for a Christmas luncheon she hosted and wrote out the recipe to give to each of us. She wrote it out on the back of a card that has a picture of a soaring eagle and the verse Isaiah 40:3 written out across it. I treasure this keepsake from her as she has since gone on to be with the Lord. I miss Bettye.
Frozen Cranberry Salad
1 can (20 oz) pineapple tidbits
5 medium-firm bananas — halved lengthwise and sliced
1 can (16 oz) whole berry cranberry sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1 container (12 oz) Cool-Whip — thawed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Drain pineapple juice into a medium bowl; set pineapple aside. Add bananas to the juice. In a large bowl, combine cranberry sauce and sugar. Remove bananas from the juice, discarding the juice; and add to the cranberry mixture. Stir in pineapple, Cool-Whip and nuts. Pour into a 13″x9″ dish. Freeze until solid. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before cutting.
