Carol IL asked about how to remove what she referred to as the gamy taste of salmon. Try soaking it in buttermilk or milk; that is what they recommend to do for venison and other wild meat. I cannot guarantee that it will make the salmon more to your liking, but I think it will help.

Cranberry Salad Recipe

1 bag cranberries
10 oz pkg marshmallows
2-3 tart apples, peeled or not as desired
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
Sugar to taste
Chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
1 container Cool Whip

Chop cranberries, marshmallows, apples. I use an old fashioned crank style chopper. If you grind marshmallows along with the fruit, donít stick so bad. Stir together, add remaining ingredients.

This is a family favorite for holiday meals. It is quick & easy, exact measurements are not necessary.
