  • 2 14 ounce can whole cranberry sauce NOT the jelly kind - you want whole berries in there
  • 1 15 ounce can mandarin oranges drained
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice OR triple sec
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts optional


  • Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl you’re going to use for serving, stirring gently so you don’t break up the orange pieces too much.
  • Chill for at least an hour before serving, so the raisins can soak up the lemon juice and the juice from the sauce. You can make this a couple of days ahead if you like – it keeps beautifully for up to a week.
