Cranberry Fluff Salad

This easy recipe for cranberry fluff salad is perfect for Thanksgiving! It's made with pineapple, fresh cranberries, marshmallows and whipped cream. This dessert is simple to make and always a hit at gatherings.



1 1/2 cups Fresh Cranberries
3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 cup Crushed Pineapple, drained
1 cup Pecans, chopped
2 cups Small Marshmallows
3 cups Whipped Cream


Place the fresh cranberries and granulated sugar in your food processor and chop them into pieces. Adjust your food processor for the consistency you would like. I like hearty chunks of cranberries.

In a medium sized bowl pour the cranberry mixture, crushed pineapple, pecans, marshmallows and whipped cream. Stir all the ingredients together until they are mixed well.

Place the covered bowl in the refrigerator for at least two hours before serving.


I like to make this dessert salad the day before I'm going to serve it. I think the flavor gets better when the salad rests in the refrigerator overnight.
