Best Cranberries Ever

I just served this salad/side dish/sauce/condiment multiple times during the holidays, as I have many times before. It is my go-to side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and is about as easy as it gets!

Best Ever Cranberry Salad Side Dish

1 bag of fresh cranberries (may substitute fresh frozen if fresh not available. You will need 2 - 2.5 cups, thawed)
1 seedless orange, may substitute 2 or 3 tangerines
1 Granny Smith or other tart green apple
1/4 cup sugar or equivalent amount of non-sugar sweetener, adjust according to your sweet tooth (I actually like it best with no sweetener at all, but Val likes it a little sweet and so do most people)

Wash, drain and pick out any bruised or crushed cranberries.
Trim thick ends of orange rind off the orange, then slice the entire orange (peel and all) into chunks about 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch
Core the green apple, unpeeled, and cut into similar sized chunks.

Place all of the above into a food processor and process until everything is chopped up into pieces about 1/8 of an inch in size. Remove to a medium sized bowl, add sweetener... That's it!

Serve by itself or is also terrific in morning oatmeal, over yogurt or ice cream.
