Here is a wonderful cranberry salad that goes well with turkey or any poultry dish. Actually, it is even great all by it's self! It is pretty as well as flavorful. We make it for Thanksgiving time.

Loved this cranberry salad! I used finely chopped pecans and the sugar instead of honey. Finely chopped the cranberries in my food processor, pulsed the grapes a few times in the processor and refrigerated overnight. Added the whipped cream mixture and cream cheese, so very good. Perfect amount of sweet and sour from the cranberries and grape mixture! Thank you MichEgan, will be making this again!
