Recipe Makeover with Ocean Spray Craisins Curried Cranberry Chicken Salad

By Orshi:

I love cranberries and not only at Thanksgiving time – cranberries in the form of Craisins® are a regular part of our diet. When I was pregnant and I had that strike of hunger that can’t wait for another moment, I would just reach into my purse for this delicious sour goodness mixed with roasted almonds and immediate equilibrium returned into my life. Craisins® has challenged me to make the swap from raisins to dried cranberries and well … it wasclip_image002 an easy thing to do

For unique flavor, color and ultimate versatility, no other dried fruit comes close to Craisins® Dried Cranberries—not even raisins! From snacking to baking, on salads and cereals, Craisins® Dried Cranberries offer ultimate versatility and variety with flavors like original, cherry, pomegranate and blueberry. Craisins® Dried Cranberries are fat-free, cholesterol-free and have no artificial flavors, preservatives or trans-fat.

You probably already know that Craisins® Dried Cranberries taste good and add a tart and tangy twist to any recipe, but did you know that they’re so good for you too? Craisins® Dried Cranberries pack a lot of powerful nutrition into one little berry.

DID YOU KNOW?

Craisins® Dried Cranberries have double the antioxidants and the same amount of sugar as the

leading brand of raisins, plus unique cranberry health benefits.

A 1/3 cup of Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries provides the same urinary tract health

benefits as one serving of cranberry juice cocktail.

Craisins® Dried Cranberries are fat-free, cholesterol-free and have no artificial flavors, preservatives or trans-fat and are a good source of fiber to help curb your hunger longer than many snacks.

One serving of Craisins® Dried Cranberries meets 25 percent of your daily recommended fruit needs.

To make the swap from raisins to Craisins®, I simply started to put it in everything that needed a little tang. While raisins are sweet, cranberries deliver that simple tartness that perfectly outbalances flavors in an amazing way. I absolutely love Craisins in oatmeal craisin cookies with white chocolate chips, in my Cranberry Orange Chex-Mix and my latest favorite Curried Cranberry Chicken Salad … wow your family with this goodness:
