Cranberry Waldorf Salad

READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
Recipe by Sheynath

This is an old family recipe. I don't know where it came from originally. I am made to bring this salad every Thanksgiving, my sister says it's not really Thanksgiving without it! It does sit overnight to mellow the cranberries, but the prep is quick.

I've been making this for Thanksgiving for over 20 years. Now everyone in the family asks for it. I do not grind the Marshmallow, but add them whole. The best part is the day after! It's the most asked for leftover!
