Frozen Cranberry Salad

I love this salad!  I think my husband and kids love it even more than I do.  It’s simple, delicious and can be made ahead of time.  Which is a big bonus during the busy holiday season.   It makes a ton, but it’s always one of the first things to go when it makes an appearance at our holiday table.  We rarely have more than a days worth of leftovers.

Rather than freezing, you can just chill this in the refrigerator before serving, although I find it holds up very well when frozen, even when thawed completely.  Just be sure to drain the pineapple well.  If you like some extra crunch, you can also add a cup or so of chopped pecans.
