My mother used to make this when I was growing up in the 60's/70's.....she would put it in a pretty crystal bowl to serve. Note: she always ground the cranberries for the recipe.

Love this cranberry salad. I think it works best if you "chop" the cranberries in a blender so they are very small. I've made it with fresh whipped cream and with whipped cream toppings and both worked.

Absolutely delicious. I agree with the 11/16/17 review about letting it "marinate" in the frig. Some of the cranberries were still crunchy. But it was still absolutely yummy.

I have made this for many years except our original recipe called for sliced bananas instead of apple. It's so delicious!

My grandmother made a version of this except with pecans instead of walnuts. She later adapted it to use rice instead of marshmallows, so it was less sweet, and vegetarian. We use 1 lb of cranberries, and use the food processor to get a finer chop. Plus it's a lot easier!

I made this for Thanksgiving, everyone lived it. Making it again for Easter, wondering if anyone has tried different fruit.

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was barely touched! I think I need to stick to more traditional homemade cranberry relish. I ended up eating it all by myself for lunch for a week.
