I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m not that good with side dishes. For week night suppers, I put the emphasis on the main dish and do very simple things for side dishes. This is one of those easy go-to sides. When I’ve forgotten that we might want something to go along with a casserole or chicken, this salad comes in handy.
It’s so easy, I’m almost embarrassed to post it. But I figure you might want an easy side dish too, so here goes.
What you’ll need:
- 1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
- 1 can mandarin oranges
Mix these together in a bowl and chill. Occassionally, I forget about this until minutes before we’re going to eat. I pop the cans into the freezer for a few minutes and then stir it all together. And then there are the nights when I don’t even have time to chill the fruit. It tastes fine at room temp too.
Yeah, sometimes I’m not very organized 😉
Sneak Peak: Next week I’m going to be talking Holiday food. There will be a big list of recipes to make for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’ll also be talking about budgeting for the extra groceries that the holidays demand.
