Cranberry Fruit Salad

Luby's Cafeteria Copycat Recipe

Serves 8-10

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 (12-oz.) package fresh cranberries, washed and picked over
1 apple, unpeeled
1 orange, peeled and white pith removed
1 banana, peeled
1 cup broken walnuts or 1 cup 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.
