Made this for Thanksgiving Dinner, It was delicious!!! This was a favorite so I'll be making it every year from now on.
Luby's-Style Cafeteria Cranberry Fruit Salad
5½ hours 1½ hours prep
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries, washed and picked over
1 apple, unpeeled (I like jonagolds)
1 orange, peeled and white pith removed
1 banana, peeled
1 cup broken walnuts or pecans
In a saucepan, mix sugar and water, stirring to dissolve sugar. Bring to a boil.
Add cranberries. Return to a boil, reduce heat and boil gently 4 to 5 minutes or until most cranberries have popped, stirring occasionally.
Remove cranberries from heat and cool completely at room temperature.
Quarter the apple; core and chop. Add to cool cranberries. Chop the orange and banana and add to cranberries with the nuts.
Mix well and refrigerate until serving time, at least 4 hours or overnight.
