Recipe submitter, here, with a few new comments. You can make this recipe with Splenda* brand sweetener. It's great, and doesn't mess with your insulin or blood sugar level. (course, the pinapple juices will, but hey..) Making punch with the drippings isn't optional, just so you know. I'ts fabulous. Mix it with homemade lemonade for a summery treat! You can adjust the marshmallow content to your liking. If you and yours arent crazy about 'those' salads packed with marshmallows, cut back. They're not really good for ya anyhow. And do use real cream, don't desecrate this recipe with miraclewhip* or anything like that. The fat is not really bad for you, read the book: "The protein power lifeplan" for good basic nutrition research. You'll be glad you did. (Look around; does america seem to have 'nutrition' down pat?) Good luck with the salad! It's yummy!
We ate the marshmallows out of it. I followed the recipe completely. Coconut might be better than marshmallows... who knows.. I was amazed at how much more juiced drained over night. That's a good suggestion.
Great salad for Christmas, everyone enjoyed it. Will make again soon! I did cut the sugar, and used fresh berries.
I was unable to find either fresh or frozen cranberries (in February) in my grocery store. But I wanted to try this salad. I substituted a 1 pound bag of tart frozen cherries and followed the rest of the directions (omitting the nuts as my family requested). It turned out wonderfully! Just in time for Valentine's Day and Presidents Day when cherries are so popular. I put a small bowl of coarsely chopped walnuts on the table for anyone who wished to add the crunch of nuts. This was a hit. I have added it to my keepers. Thanks Chandell!
We've had a very similar recipe in the family for years. It's easy and delicious and a perfect addition to Thanksgiving dinner.
We usually use 1 cup of sugar instead of 2 cups, and it tastes great.
I USED 1 CUP & 3/4'S OF SUGAR..........ANF THAT WAS PERFECT....IT IS A VERY DELICIOUS SALAD!! IT WILL BE ADDED TO MY RECIPE LIST FOR SURE. IF YOU LIKE CRANBERRIES YOU WILL LOVE THIS SALAD!!!! EVEN IF YOU DONT IT'S SO TANGY SWEET GOOD!!
Great Recipe! Fast and Easy! I wanted something tart and tangy for Thanksgiving and I got it! I had to use dried cranberries as the store was all out of fresh and even that worked great! Also, the walnuts provide an interesting texture for your mouth.
awesome! just like my grandma's!!!
