It’s funny that as families we have certain foods that we eat during the holidays.

For my family, we always have some sort of a JELL-O salad served with dinner. Whether it’s this Pistachio Fluff or this Cherry Dump Salad, a sweet salad is a must-have for the holidays.

My favorite, however, is this Frozen Cranberry Salad. So I thought I’d give it a new twist this year.

We eat a lot of mandarin oranges in our house, fresh and canned! So it’s very fitting that we added them into a our “salad.”

Of course, I use that term salad loosely. Some people get very offended that we call this a salad. But in my mind, it’s like a fruit salad. Right?

The best part of this dish is that it can be made DAYS in advance. You can make it today and it will be perfect for Christmas dinner. (just don’t forget about it in your freezer, haha)!

Slice and serve with dinner, ENJOY!
