Recipe Directions

1. Chop cranberries, 1/2 pear, and celery to 1/4 inch pieces.
2. Cut 1/2 peeled orange into slices and the other 1/2 into tidbits and add to cranberry mixture with nuts, spices, zest, and sweetener. Mix well and let stand at least 1 hour for best flavor. I usually leave out the nuts for a lighter, better combined salad.
3. Arrange as shown using baby lettuce, sliced orange, and cranberry halves. The turkey is 1/2 a pear with a pumpkin seed beak, currant eyes, and a persimmon waddle. Use any red fruit for the waddle, even a red apple peel:)
