Cranberry Salad

This family favorite is from reader Stephanie Di Raimo.


  • 1 bag cranberries
  • 1/2 bag marshmallows
  • 1 can crushed pineapple
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup pecans (optional)
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream


Put a mixing bowl and the beaters in the freezer to get the bowl nice and cold for the whipping cream.

Next, rinse the cranberries with water in a colander and go through them to make sure there are no bad berries. Set aside in a small bowl.

Drain the pineapple and set aside.

Using a food processor, chop the marshmallows and cranberries using the steel blade until blended together well. Add sugar to the berries. Put the berries mixture in a bowl and keep in the fridge until you are ready for them again.

Take the bowl and beaters out of freezer and make whipped cream using an electric beater. Make sure the whipped cream is nice and firm.

Take marshmallow and cranberry mixture out of ice box add pineapple to mixture, then add pecans (optional). Lastly, add the whipped cream.

Set in the icebox ’til ready to eat with a delicious turkey dinner.
