    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    This has been a traditional salad on our Thanksgiving table for many years. To give you an idea of how long, the only red grapes I could get at first had seeds in them. There was no such thing as seedless! This salad is so much less work now that I don't have to seed the grapes. And it really is delicious -- so different . And it has a make-ahead feature that is most welcome at this busy time. It can be started up to 2 days ahead. Recipe from BH&G. Chilling time is not counted in prep time.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Put cranberries through the food grinder, using coarse blade. Or chop in processor. Stir in sugar. Let stand overnight.
    2. 2
      Next morning, drain well, pressing lightly to remove excess juice. (Reserve the juice for another use. I like to add it to a fruit punch.) Cut grapes in half and remove seeds if necessary. Add grapes and nuts to well-drained cranberry mixture. This much may be done ahead. Refrigerate.
    3. 3
      Just before serving, fold in the whipped cream. Mound in a lettuce-lined bowl, garnished with clusters of grapes. Serve immediately. Recipe doubles easily.
    4. 4
      Note: You may add a small can of pineapple tidbits, well drained, with the grapes and walnuts, if you wish.

      Just finished Thanksgiving dinner; very nice side dish. I served this instead of the jellied cranberry sauce (which I happen to like!). Made it as recipe stated; no tweaking at all; which doesn't usually happen with me! My boyfriend's mom asked for the recipe & then she said "never mind, I'll just have you make it every year.

      My family has been making this for years. I use pecans instead of walnuts and whatever seedless grapes look good at the store. This is so much better than than more tradional cranberry salads.

      I have this same recipe and was at first hesistant to try it as my recipe calls for Cool Whip. Skip the Cool Whip and use the real stuff. I also used a combination of seedless green AND red grapes for color. Toasted the walnuts lightly, cooled then proceeded with recipe. As much a dessert as it is a salad. This isn't usually my type of salad but for festive occasions it hit the spot and added the poundage. Thanks for sharing. cg ;)
