Cranberry Salad (A.k.a. Thanksgiving Pink Stuff)

Cranberry Salad (A.k.a. Thanksgiving Pink Stuff) created by PanNan

My mother got this recipe from a dear family friend in the 1950's. No matter who in our family is making Thanksgiving dinner, you can bet this dish will be served. Note: the times indicated do not include refrigeration time. Cranberries from Wisconsin make this a Midwest U.S. regional recipe. (Also, I first enjoyed it in Missour - another fine Midwestern state).

  • The day before serving, cook cranberries in water over low heat until soft.
  • Add sugar and mash.
  • Add chopped nuts.
  • Stir, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • About 4 hours before serving, add the fruit cocktail.
  • Just before serving, whip cream, add sugar and vanilla and whip until soft peaks form.
  • Add bananas to fruit mixture.
  • Gently fold whipped cream into fruit mixture until well blended.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Note: You can use Cool Whip instead of whipping the cream, but the flavor is so much better with the real thing!

    This is incredible. But I am one of those people that love FLUFF! I never had it as a child and now eat huge portions whenever anyone brings it to a potluck. This was so good. I will definately make this again. Thanks!
