Reviews for Cranberry Waldorf Salad
"I made half a recipe for our family gatherings of eight. The only change I made was that I used Cool Whip instead of whipped cream. Very good and less fat and calories."
"I was given this recipe over 40 years ago and it is still a family favorite for Thanksgiving dinner. My old recipe had one direction differently - whip the cream and fold in the miniature marshmallows, then let that set in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Otherwise, it is identical to this recipe and always a winner!"
"Made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it."
"slocook805, they are good for you."
"I think someone needs to look up the definition of "Waldorf salad". This is a variation of Ambrosia. 1 star for the inclusion of marshmallows, sorry but I can't stand 'em."
"I've always loved Waldorf salad. As to the name, it was named for the Waldorf Hotel where it was created in 1896. I booked my son in the Waldorf when he took the two-day New York Bar Exam, and he made sure he ordered it there, too! The addition of cranberries is interesting and tasty! My family and guests love this salad!"
"My mom clipped this recipe out of a taste of home magazine almost 10 years ago I think, and we've been making it at thanksgivings ever since. Everyone I serve it to is amazed by the decadence of this salad, it almost doubles in size once you add the whipped cream, and we always make a batch with chopped candied walnuts and one without. The best results are when you make it the night before and let the whole concoction ferment in the sugars and add the heavy cream at the last minute before serving! A true hit in my family!"
"Waldorf...What a name for a salad! I never heard of this until my early 30's, My co-worker, Ellen said that she was going to make a Waldorf salad. I stepped back a gave her a dumbfounded look and asked, "What is a..Waldorf..salad ? ? " She explained to me what it was. Just the name - Waldorf ! Wasn't there a character in one of the StarTrek episodes? But, this and other Waldorf salads I had were good."
"I love this recipe, it's easy and festive at the table (it turns pink from the cranberries). I omitted the pineapple, and used toasted almonds for the nuts. I also chopped the frozen cranberries in a food processor and combined them with the sugar and marshmallows and chilled overnight. The next morning I added the remaining ingred and served. You can substitute 1 cup of whipped topping for the whipped cream. I am planning to make this recipe again for Christmas this year."
