This cranberry salad is the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving meal. My gluten-free son particularly likes it and asked me to make it for Thursday.
The apples, Asian pears, orange juice, and honey help to balance the tartness of the cranberries. The cinnamon and zest add a touch of flavor. The walnuts add texture and flavor, but you really need to toast them first to bring out their flavor.
We really like Asian pears, and they help to make this a special holiday dish, but if you prefer you can use another type of pear. You could also increase the amount of honey if you would like a sweeter salad.
