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!


  • 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


In a food processor, grid up the raw cranberries until they are al chopped up nice and tiny.


Cut up your apples and toss them with the lemon juce to keep them from turning brown.


Cut your grapes in half.


Now in a medium bowl, combine the cranberries, apples, grapes and sugar.  Stir this up.  Send this to the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.


Just before serving, fold in the mini marshmallows.


Oh.  Yes.  This is the way I should have been eating cranberries all along.  This salad does not last long around my family!  Enjoy!

  1. I’ve always wanted to try this recipe. I have on occasion come across a similar recipe or two. Thanks for posting! Gonna try it out at my next family gathering! I’m wondering if cranberries can be used after being frozen?
