Cranberry Waldorf Salad

Cranberries grow in the coastal area about 50 miles from our home. When they become available, I always make this creamy salad. —Faye Huff, Longview, Washington

    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!

    I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a hit and had some left over. I added cut-up turkey the next day to make a delicious cranberry Waldorf turkey salad. The salad does get a but runny the second day but it made for a great tasting, moist salad.
