Hi Everyone,  

This is one of my favorite fruit salads that I look forward to at this time of year when cranberries are in season.  I have been making it almost every day for the last month.  Not everyone enjoys the hint of onion granules in a fruit salad, so try a little in a small sample bowl before adding it to the entire recipe.  I also often substitute mango and pears for the pineapple when I can't find a ripe pineapple.   Hope you enjoy it and please send your photos and comments!
