Bored by the same old relish, we married cranberry sauce with the flavors of Waldorf salad.
Why This Recipe Works
For a new twist on cranberry relish, we took inspiration from the classic Waldorf combination of apples, walnuts, raisins, and celery (hold the mayo). We cooked the cranberries briefly in apple juice and a reduced amount of sugar (instead of water) until most had burst. One shredded apple thickened the mixture, while a chopped apple, chopped celery, and raisins provided texture to the finished relish. A final addition of toasted walnuts before serving completed the balance.
