Very good everyone said they enjoyed it and look forward to it again. The apple did not discolor.

I mixed everything but the cream together the night before, and the next day when we got to the in-laws house added the freshly whipped cream....refrigerated for a bit and, WOW! What a lovely salad and fabulous way to add Cranberries to Thanksgiving without putting up with the canned kind!

Very nice flavors and easy to make. I didn't chope the cranberries fine enough though and it was a bit crunchy. Will save and make again. Thanks for sharing.
