Reviews for Creamy Cranberry Salad
"Really, Really Good. I was so happy to find a recipe that used whipping cream instead of chemical laden whipped toppings. I will definitely made this a lot."
"Followed the recipe, no changes and everyone loved it."
"I cook in an elementary school and made this for the kids and they loved it. I did not have whole cranberries so I used canned cranberry sauce and it worked fine. I also could not put in the walnuts due to allergies. This is a keeper and I will make it again."
"Absolutely will be making it again. It was very good and everyone else loved it too for Christmas. I would also halve the recipe for a smaller group. You don't have to wait just until you serve it to fold in the whipped cream and walnuts. It was fine the 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th day."
"If you like any kind of whipped or fruit type salad then you will really enjoy this, I could not find cranberries fresh or frozen so I used frozen cherries, and it was delicious … Using the cherries makes it a deeper color than what it shows in the picture but no big deal, have to say that this is a keeper, thank you so much for sharing."
"Spectacular and crazy easy. I substituted a clementine for the apple and would do that again. Omitted the walnuts due to allergies. Regardless of the changes, everyone loved it."
"Very tasty and easy to put together. A Definite Winner! Even for the little kids that may not like fresh cranberries! Keeper..."
"This was outstanding but I just realized I forgot the apple! Haha! Will definitely be making this again."
"I thought this recipe was really good and easy. It made a colorful addition to our Thanksgiving table. It makes a lot so I think I would halve it for smaller groups. I've also made it with frozen cherries."
