"This cranberry salad recipe is reminiscent of a Waldorf salad or a taffy apple salad. Sweet and creamy, this cranberry salad is supposedly a favorite among kids but all of the adults love it too! "

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine chopped cranberries and sugar in a large, nonreactive bowl. Toss well. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  2. After 3 hours, stir apples, marshmallows, and pecans into cranberries. Combine yogurt and whipped topping; fold into cranberry salad. Serve immediately.


  • Cook's Note
  • I always prepare the recipe up to step 3 the day before than complete it in the morning and usually serve it for lunch. It says to serve immediately but the salad keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 2 days although there usually aren't any leftovers.

Loved it! I made it as a side dish for Christmas dinner and it was as beautiful as it was delicious!

I tried this the first time on my family at Christmas. They all loved it. It was sweet and tangy, a nice change from the heavy, creamy food at Christmas time. Will make it again.
