The RFM Cranberry Salad

Ken Andrews Recipe for Cranberry Salad

I cannot tell you the number of Cranberry Salads that I have seen that use cool whip, marshmallow, candied nuts etc. My own family had one, and while I know a lot of it is tradition my family has a new tradition we celebrate: being healthy. We are committed to changing our health but we also recognize, we don’t have to lose flavor to keep our health!

Notice the ingredients we are using are fresh, vibrant and full of life! I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as my family has!

RFM Cranberry Salad

Ingredients

8 oz Greek Yogurt 0% Fat

2 cups Fresh Cranberries—washed and halved

2 Honey Crisp Apples—cored and chopped

1 cup chopped Celery

1 cup Green seedless grapes halved

1/3 cup Raisins

¼ cup chopped Walnut

3 tbsp Stevia in the Raw

¼ tsp ground Cinnamon

¼ cup Chia Seeds

 

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, cranberries, apples, celery, grapes, raisins, walnuts Stevia, and Cinnamon. Toss ingredients to make sure they are coated with yogurt. Place mixture in serving dish, cover and chill. Just prior to serving sprinkle chia seeds across the top.

Healthy Adjustments

We adjusted this recipe by exchanging Stevia for the Sugar, adding chia seeds, and using Greek 0% Fat Yogurt instead of low fat regular yogurt. Basically the chia seeds offset the other exchanges meaning each serving has the same calories but better nutrition.
