Lydia's Cranberry Salad

Lydia's Cranberry Salad

"This has always been a holiday favorite; it's even good for breakfast the next day. It's got a little of everything - cranberries, grapes, nuts, and miniature marshmallows - all held together with whipped topping. This keeps several days. In the beginning I was always told I HAD to use fresh whipped cream, but in later years my mother-in -law admitted to using nondairy whipped topping herself. A memory of my beloved mother-in-law, and something that makes Christmas...CHRISTMAS!"

I made this recipe for my family and they loved it. I did make a few changes: I omitted the grapes and added 1 cup of walnuts instead of pecans. It was delicious - and it tasted great the next...

I thought this was quite good. It was missing something though and I am going to experiment with other ingredients until I feel it is even more flavorable.

My family has been making this recipe for at least 40 years. One step that I think is very important is to drain the cranberries before mixing with the other ingredients. Let the berries macer...
