Cranberry Apple Walnut Salad - A Running Salad Recipe
What exactly is Cranberry Apple Walnut Salad. It's a unique fruit salad that isn’t too sweet or too tart. A delicious dish for any occasion, but especially fantastic for outdoor gatherings. Serve as a side dish for your pasta the day before a race.
