Cranberry Salad

I am one of those who does not like cranberry sauce, cranberry jello..okay cranberry juice mixed with grape juice is good but all those others, I will just passed over.

BUT…. this is a recipe that I got from my Granny and I am in love.  You don’t have to wait until Christmas to make it you just have to find the raw cranberries and that can be tricky any time of year.

Simple, simple ingredients which is almost always a pre-requisite.  The only problem is finding raw cranberries but I am on a mission to see if Ocean Spray will send them directly to me.  We shall see because I want this more than just Christmas time!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag raw cranberries
  • 2 large granny smith apples
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup grapes
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 8 ounces whipped topping
