I found cranberries on sale and so began the search for recipes to use them! Pinterest led me to this delicious fruit salad!
12 oz package fresh cranberries
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 red apples, chopped
1 green apple, chopped
11oz can Mandarin oranges, drained
2 large bananas, sliced
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1-2 cups mini marshmallows
Combine water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Add cranberries and cook until you start to hear (and see) the cranberries pop. Remove from heat and refrigerate for several hours (or more).
In a large bowl toss apples, oranges, bananas, and lemon juice (to prevent browning). Drain most of the juice from the cranberries and add them to the mixture. Finally mix in the marshmallows.
If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
