Cranberry Chutney Salad

  • 1  12-ounce back fresh cranberries, rinsed
  • 1  18-ounce jar orange marmalade
  • 1  8-ounce can crushed pineapple with liquid
  • 3/4 cup turbinado sugar 

Place cranberries and marmalade into a food processor and pulse until you get a course texture. Do not over-process into a sauce. Pour into a bowl and stir in the pineapple and sugar. Cover the bowl and allow to chill a day or two before serving. (Do not serve right away after preparing it – the flavors need time to develop).

  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
