Cranberry Salad

Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I thought I’d share a creamy cranberry salad recipe we had fun making in Katie’s kitchen. It’s super simple and oh-so-delicious!

First, chop up 3 cups of fresh or frozen cranberries, and 1 medium-sized apple…

Put them in a large bowl and then add 20 ounces of crushed pineapple (drained) and 2 cups of miniature marshmallows…

Next, mix in 1/2 cup of sugar (or Splenda to equal 1/2 cup of sugar) and 1 cup of coconut…

Last but not least, mix in 1/4 cup of (chopped) pecans or walnuts, then cover and store in the refrigerator over night. Before serving, fold in 8 ounces of Cool Whip.
