Cranberry Waldorf Salad

Cranberry Waldorf Salad created by Baby Kato

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!

    DEFINITELY A WINNER OF A SALAD! As with many other recipes, when I can, I used toasted pecans here, though otherwise I followed the recipe & had a wonderful addition to a lunch buffet! Will be making this again especially during the winter holidays! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my partners in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #22]

    This Waldorf fruit salad was delicious and very pretty Sheynath. I enjoyed all the flavors and textures in this dish. The salad was light and creamy, tart, sweet and tangy. Thanks so much for sharing, a dish that I will make again and again.

    Thanks for posting this. My mother-in-law always made this for the holidays. I believe it came from the Ocean Spray cranberries packaging.My husband's family has enjoyed it for years.I was going to post it but thought I'd check for it first. When we make it we just grind/process the cranberries, then stir in the marshmallows and sugar and let chill overnight before adding the rest of the ingredients. It has become a yearly request for my side of the family's Thanksgiving dinner.
