Every holiday needs a salad. I’m not talking about only green salads– I mean pasta salads, potato salads, egg salads, chicken salads, any kind of salad you want to make! Any kind of salad goes. Bring your favorite holiday salad recipes to the table!

Cranberries are a must on my holiday meals list. I absolutely LOVE cranberries!

All these delicious cranberry dishes. Why have I never made Cranberry Walnut Potato Salad before now?

You have Thanksgiving and Christmas flavors of cranberries and walnuts in one bite!

Cranberry Walnut Potato Salad adds celery and fresh basil to Idaho® potatoes for a crunch factor. The dressing spices it up with spicy brown mustard and a pinch of horseradish.
