Thanksgiving Cranberry Salad

I used to leave out the traditional cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving – nobody every ate it.
After discovering this recipe for Cranberry Salad – it is my absolute favorite traditional recipe to make during the holidays. I can make this a day ahead, too.
Cranberry Salad
1 lb. Fresh Cranberries (crush in blender)
2 Cups of Sugar
Blend the Crushed Berries and Sugar together.
Cover and store in the refrigerator over night.
Two to Four hours before serving stir in:
1/2 lb. White Marshmallows
1 Cup of whipped – Whipping Cream (I add a little powdered sugar to my whipping cream)
1 Cup of Nuts (I like slivered almonds)
Refrigerate until serving.
Mine is going to a teacher luncheon so I put it in a disposable container.
Delicious, colorful and it’s one of those left overs that tastes yummy all weekend!
