Southern Cranberry Salad

  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon (generous) ground ginger
  • 1 cup chopped walnut
  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup cranberry juice or cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 8 oranges, peel and white pith removed, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, chilled
  • Fresh mint sprigs (optional)

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix first 5 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Add nuts; toss to coat well. Strain nuts, reserving liquid. Transfer nuts to baking sheet. Sprinkle nuts with brown sugar. Bake until golden brown, about 17 minutes. Cool completely.

Whisk 3/4 cup water, cranberry juice and reserved liquid from nuts in medium saucepan to blend. Stir in dried cranberries. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until cranberries soften and liquid is reduced to thin syrup, about 20 minutes. (Can be made 3 days ahead. Store nuts airtight at room temperature. Cover and chill cranberry mixture.)

Arrange orange slices on platter. Spoon cranberry mixture over. Sprinkle nuts over. Garnish with mint, if desired.
