Easy Cranberry Salad

Easy Cranberry Salad

The name says it all. This salad likely appears in most family buffet lines on Thanksgiving for a good reason. It’s just that good! Reserve a few whole fresh cranberries to garnish the top of the dish before serving.


1 bag fresh cranberries

1 c. granulated sugar

1 (8-oz.) can crushed pineapple, undrained

1/2 c. chopped walnuts

2 c. mini marshmallows

1 pint heavy whipping cream


1. In a food processor, chop cranberries.

2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together cranberries, sugar, crushed pineapple and walnuts. Refrigerate for one hour. Give it another stir and set aside.

3. In a stand mixer, beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. With a large spoon, fold in the marshmallows and cranberry mixture until evenly distributed. Dump into a pretty serving dish and refrigerate overnight.

Apron Strings Tips: I’ve used a contained of whipped topping before to short cut this recipe, but I really encourage you to make the homemade version.
