This cranberry fluff salad is a cool-weather side dish or dessert that combines tart cranberries, sweet pineapple, and fresh apples with soft cream and walnuts.
‣ 3 cup cranberries, fresh or thawed ‣ 3/4 cup granulated sugar ‣ 8 ounce Cool Whip ‣ 8 ounce crushed pineapple, drained ‣ 1 medium apple, chopped ‣ 1 cup walnuts, chopped ‣ 2 cup miniature marshmallows
Add cranberries to a food processor and pulse a few times. The goal is to crush and chop most of the cranberries while still leaving a few whole berries, but feel free to crush them as much (or as little) as you’d like.
Transfer cranberries to a large bowl, then pour the sugar on top. Use a spatula to gently toss and cranberries in the sugar.
Add the Cool Whip, crushed pineapple, and chopped apples to the bowl with the cranberries, then gently mix them together until the pineapple is even throughout and the cool whip turns a light pink color.
Gently fold in some chopped walnuts.
Finish by gently folding in the mini marshmallows.
