A Powers’ Family Original Holiday Tradition: Holiday Fruit Salad (with Fresh Cranberries)

I have a dear friend who was an accountant for many years, and at my request, she shared a recipe she’d created for her family . . . in the perfect format for somebody who’s computer savvy: A spread sheet! However, I’m a klutz and couldn’t figure out how to turn it into a wordpress-friendly doc., so I’ll share it with you as is, just in time for the holidays. Merry Christmas!! Here’s what she shared:  “I love cranberries but at our family gatherings I seemed to be the only one enjoying the cranberry dishes……so I created Powers Family Holiday Fruit Salad. Everyone loves it, and it is now a tradition for Thanksgiving and Christmas.”
