I love the mix of tangy, sweet and creamy flavor in every bite! Trust me, you’ll be praising my name for sharing this recipe with ya.
Last year my friend Heather casually mentioned that her family has a tradition of eating this yummy cranberry salad with Thanksgiving dinner. Thanksgiving had past so I decided to put it on our Christmas Dinner menu. It was FANTASTIC, definitely my favorite part of the whole meal and I will never, NEVER let another Thanksgiving or Christmas pass without making this mind blowing recipe.
One of the most exciting things about this Cranberry Fluff Salad with Apples and Walnuts is it doesn’t get it’s flavor from a Jello packet (don’t get me wrong I love almost every Jello Salad known to man) but this salad gets all of it’s awesomeness from the cranberries, apples, walnuts, sugar and whipping cream, With just five ingredients, it’s a no-fuss, quick recipe…the only thing is you have to remember to prepare the cranberries (crush them and sprinkle them with the sugar) the night before.
- 1 bag fresh cranberries
- 1 large gala apple
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 cups whipping cream
- Use a food processor to finely chop the cranberries add sugar to cranberries, mix well and refrigerate over night
- cut the apple into tidbit size pieces
- Using a hand mixer whip the whipping cream until it stiffens and can hold it's shape.
- Add whipped cream, walnuts and apples to cranberry mixture and mix well.
