My grandmother passed this recipe to my mother who passed it on to me and my children. I do not remember a Thanksgiving in my entire life (and I'm 69 years old) without this salad and we try to serve it on Christmas, too. My 86-year-old aunt who lives in St. George, Utah, grows the sweet variety of pomegranates in her back yard. She manages to send me a box of this wonderful fruit every year a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving.

This cranberry recipe was a nice change from just regular cranberries and was served by a friend of mine. It was so easy to make. she just told me her recipe and I remembered it. I have since impressed my friends and relatives who are always asking me how I made it!

The first time my daddy made them for us, and was the best christmas i had as a child!
Family and friends would always request that I make my Holiday Ambrosia, my fudge, and Dump Cake recipes at christmas time.

I love cheese cake. So, it was easy to come up with this simple recipe. The ingredients just sounded too good to be able to create this scrumptuous side dish. It is a perfect compliment to your turkey dinner. The preparation is simple and only takes minutes to create. I don't have a picture, but could take one if needed.

My husband and children look forward to my dressing every Thanksgiving and Christmas and expect to take some home with them. This makes me feel so good. I love to cook when my family loves to eat what I'm cooking.

This is great as a side dish or dessert with ice cream because it's warm and crunchy.
I got this recipe from my Home Economics book when I was in high school in 1969. It has become a holiday tradition to make this dish for our Christmas dinner. It is a pretty, colorful dish; and it is delicious. Simple and quick to make.

Marge is a fellow quilter and she gave me this recipe in the grocery store where I work. She is a gifted quilter and a good friend.
This was special because we shared this dish with a homeless fellow on Thanksgiving, and also with my daughter and her family for the first time. I don't have a picture; I never thought of that, just eating it.
Mom fixed this delicious cranberry salad for us every year for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. So good!
This is the most amazing way to eat sweet potatoes. It's not low-calorie, but it is high comfort food. One time when my kids were young, they were a little intimidated about eating sweet potato casserole. I surprised them when I said "no one leaves the table until they eat the casserole or they put their hands in it and squish it around." They had the greatest time and 15 years later bring up that holiday memory.
My Auntie Brenda made this in England when I lived with her. It was a favorite of my sons, and we often had it after a long day of fox hunting. I make it in the winter, and it's wonderful hot or cold with HP sauce. It's healthy and filling. Good for a savoury snack.
They'll be creamy through and through and something on the day of the meal -- you won't have to do!
This salad is so good with ham or turkey at Thanksgiving or Christmas time. Any leftovers go well with cottage cheese.
It's the simpliest way to make string beans dish special for Christmas dinner.
This is a family tradition. No one in the family would feel it was Christmas or Thanksgiving without this dish. You will love it.
