My father-by-marriage contributed this dish to our Thanksgiving dinner. It's something he makes frequently and takes with him as a contribution when he's invited out for dinner. It always surprises people that an 81 year old man can be such a good cook. . .and that fact always surprises him! Of course he can cook! This recipe is superb! What difference should age make? Here's his recipe:
Jelled Cranberry Molded Salad
2 cans whole cranberry sauce
2 cans crushed pineapple
2 cups non-dairy topping, whipped
1 - 2 cups pecans
Mix all ingredients together, folding in whipped cream gently. Place in a mold and freeze until solid. When ready to serve, remove from mold onto a plate. "Frost" with more whipped topping. Decorate with pecan halves and serve.
