I am considering cooking the cranberries. Have you tried that? I loved it. Hi Mary, I agree the cranberries and pineapples do create kind of a coconut texture. I personally like the salad best on about the 4th day so if you made it today and the party is around Wednesday or Thursday, it should be awesome by then! Hopefully all the other guests will like it. Hi Suzanne, Yes I cover it with plastic wrap and stir it again just before serving. Happy Thanksgiving to you and thanks for trying the recipe!
Millionaire Cranberry Salad
I made this last year for Thanksgiving, and it was a BIG hit. A double batch disappeared in one day! Really quite easy, and oh-so-amazing! Thank you! Ann, thank you so much for taking the time to reply about one of my favorite Thanksgiving Day recipes, it means a lot! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I recommend buying a fresh bag of cranberries in the produce section. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe, Sally. I made it for the first time yesterday for Thanksgiving and it turned out really well! I think I have a new addition to the holiday menus.
Frosted Cranberry Jello Salad
I did add a chopped apple I saw that suggestion on another recipe since I had one on hand that needed to be used. Joni, What a nice comment to wake up to the day after Thanksgiving. Thanks for taking the time to comment and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving celebration.
Let me know how it turns out if you do substitute! My family loves this salad. I have to make it every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I prepare mine 2 days before and I use a stainless steel bowl which removes the bitter taste of the cranberries. There are never left overs. Good tip about the stainless steel bowl.
Cranberry Chicken Salad - The Salty Marshmallow
I have one and will try it. Glad you and your family likes it as much as mine does. Happy Thanksgiving and thanks so much for stopping by. My family loved this for Christmas! I wanted to make it again with fresh cranberries, but they were unavailable due to the growing season.
May I use a can of Ocean Spray whole berry cranberry sauce, reduce the sugar, add the crushed pineapple, marshmallows, and whipped cream? How much sugar should I add since their is sugar in the cranberries? Cathy, I have never made this with canned cranberry sauce, but would experiment by maybe not adding any sugar until all the other ingredients are mixed together. Then taste it and add what you want according to taste. I made the cranberry salad tonight and after trying it…omg!
It is delicious!!!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I want to make this for Christmas. My family are raspberry lovers but they are more delicate than cranberries. Should I use fresh or frozen and are there any alterations to the recipe for it to turn out as delicious as your cranberry version?
Would I still chop the raspberries in the food processor? Use the same amount of sugar? Hi Vicki, I am leaning more toward frozen myself but that is only because the fresh raspberries currently in my refrigerator are quite flavorless this time of year. I would, however, mash them up a little with a potato masher to release some juice but leave at least half of them pretty intact.
Since the raspberries are more delicate than cranberries, you might need more than is called for in the recipe, say an extra cup. I have confidence your raspberry-loving family will love this recipe. Let me know how it is.
How to Make Cranberry Salad
Merry Christmas! Vicki,the first time I made this for my extended family using cranberries, they thought the cranberries were raspberries. Maybe you could make everything else ahead besides the whipped cream and add that later. Notice I said was?! I did not have the issue with this being runny as others did. I used fresh cranberries and made sure to dry them very well after I had washed them and before running through food processor. Also made sure the heavy whipping cream was whipped into stiff peaks and used all the marshmallows called for!
Anyway, thank you for sharing this yummy recipe! It has won a place in my make again holiday recipes! Ashley, glad it worked out for you and that you liked it, lol. Notice I said like-D Thanks for commenting. How long should it take to get the right texture for whipping cream?
T, I used a handheld electric mixer and it takes about two minutes at most. My beaters are pretty powerful though — Krups Brand. Beat until there are stiff peaks like normal whipped cream you would dollop on top of pie or such. It does help to have your bowl and beaters chilled to speed up the process, which I did not.
But like Sally said, normal whipped cream consistency. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving! HUGE hit! When I was folding in the whipped cream, I did notice some of the juices on the bottom of the bowl, so I did give it the occasional stir while it chilled throughout the day. By the time you eat it, you can tell the marshmallows have absorbed liquid because they almost dissolved in your mouth. The only other thing I can think of for those having issues with a watery texture is perhaps making sure your cream is whipped stiff. All in all, it was fabulous! Will be a regular from now on.
Stacy, thank you so much for taking the time to add these helpful comments. So my question is, can I use cool whip instead and cut back on the sugar? I know cool whip is sweet as it is. Tip 4.

A TOUCH OF SUGAR
I usually shy away from dishes like this, but you make me want to cuddle with it. OMG yes please!! I love cranberries. I bet this would be a fantastic topping on pie as well. The only thing better that can improve this salad is using pretzels to eat it. Making this for tomorrow!
