1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1 (16 ounce) can
whole cranberry sauce
heavy whipping cream
Delicious and very pretty for holiday table. I added a can of mandarin oranges and pineapple tidbits which I had drained for 12 hours and a cup of marshmallows. Next time will reduce conf. sugar, as it was quite sweet.
I loved the concept of the ingredients but found that I needed 2 cans of the whole cranberry sauce or else half of the other ingredients to get the full cranberry taste. Maybe the brand of sauce that I used didn't have enough berries, but with another can it is very good.
Delightful! I get lots of complements on this. This year I trimmed the edge of the bowl with sliced canned cranberry sauce so it looked like a petals on a flower. It looked pretty and the die hard cranberry sauce people were happy to have that to go with their turkey as well.
I made this for Thanksgiving this year and was told to be sure to bring it Christmas dinner as well!! YUM!!
Is is the best cranberry salad I have eaten...My entire family loved it...I will for sure make this over and over again...Thanks for sharing this
This is so easy to put together and sooo good, that my daughter wanted to know if we really had to take it to the Thanksgiving pot luck to share!
My grandma used to make this every Christmas and Thanksgiving. I made it for the first time for Thanksgiving this year, and it was a big hit. However, I omit the mayo. It's not as shiny looking or as rich without it, but it is also lighter, fluffier, and slightly sweeter. I also double the whipped cream and use one 8 oz. can of whole berry and one 8 oz. can of jellied cranberry sauce.
