Cranberry Salad is my must-have holiday dish. I love the pretty pink color, the tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of everything else. I do not like most pies, and don't eat turkey, so these is my Thanksgiving staple.
1 pound of cranberries
1 can of crushed pineapple
1 cup sugar
1-2 cups mini marshmallows
1 carton Cool Whip
Drain well the pineapple juice out of the pineapple. In the meantime, grind the cranberries in a food processor, until pieces are pretty small and place in a bowl. Add the sugar and marshmallows and pineapple juice to the cranberries. Let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours. Fold in the Cool Whip and then serve.
Oftentimes I add about half the sugar, because I like it tart.
