I think most families have either this recipe or one very similar. It’s just a must. The Holiday meals wouldn’t be the same without some version of this recipe.

Have had my recipe for years. It is a little different. I do not use grapes. And I use two Red Delicious apples cut up into small pieces. The night before I need the salad I grind up two 12 oz pkgs of the cranberies, put in 3/4 cup sugar and one large (drained) crushed pineapple. The next morning I dice up the two apples, add the marshmallows, one cup of English walnuts chopped and then whip the cream (stiff) and mix the salad. Real whipped cream is a must, not the non-dairy kind. I then put it in a clear glass bowl for serving. It is so pretty, you want to see it all. The only reason I gave this a 4 star is because I like mine better.

I make this every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving. It's my family's favorite and is also the most requested recipe of anything I make and take to dinners. I always have to double the recipe because everyone wants more.

This recipe has been in my husband's family f-o-r-e-v-e-r, and I am currently the keeper of the famous Fluff recipe. Our recipe is slightly different than the one above. First, I've found the 12 oz. bag of cranberries makes 3 ground cups, and that's plenty. It's easy to freeze the cranberries ahead of time, and food process frozen. Also, since we want a Fluff-y, cloud-like texture, we don't use the grapes, but we do make sure the apple, 1 stalk of celery, and at least 1 banana are finely chopped. A small can of very well-drained crushed pineapple is added too for sweetness and consistency. It's a beautiful salad. Easy to make. So requested! For us, it isn't Thanksgiving or Christmas without the Fluff!

This is a family favorite. I make it evey year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The flavor is outstanding, a nice balance of sweet and tart. I have served this as a side dish with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and also on the dessert table. It is a really nice balance to all the sweet, heavy desserts.

This is a new favorite! I made it for the Superbowl party we attended & EVERYONE loved it! Even someone who HATES fruit went back for seconds of this! I used fat free cool-whip instead of the heavy whipping cream & substituted Splenda for the sugar & it still turned out FABULOUS!
