A seasonal favorite, this quick & easy Cranberry Fluff Salad features fresh cranberries, crushed pineapple, and mini marshmallows tossed in freshly whipped cream. It’s the perfect dessert, whether you’re just craving a bit of seasonal flavor or need to whip something up at the last second.
Last weekend we’re checking out of Costco, and my husband goes through a series of emotion. It’s plain, for all to see, right there on his face. First is curiosity, then there’s shock, and that’s occasionally followed by abject horror.
Or at least this was the case when he watched me put 2 Costco sized bags of Ocean Spray cranberries on the conveyor belt.
Side note: my husband has only recently become open to new veggies, actually trying and liking them. Fruits and berries? Those are a much more closed subject.
No honey, I’m not going to serve you a raw bowl of cranberries and try to call it a meal. No need to worry.
I did have to explain though, that as a blogger, running a successful recipe website that I do have to cook seasonally.
Thanksgiving & Christmas are coming. SOON. Cranberries are in babe.
And no longer just as a jelly or relish to serve alongside the meat. They’re flavors have become incorporated into every meal of the season, from breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Even snacks and appetizers.
My new favorite way to enjoy them though, hands down, is in this scrumptious Cranberry Fluff Salad.
It’s fun, fluffy, and most of all festive. All three of my favorite prerequisites in a holiday dish. It’s also quick & easy, and I meant it. We’re talking your pie burnt and you’ve got no dessert and dinner’s almost done quick.
It may not be as savory as some of your favorite holiday pies, but it’s sweet enough to satisfy any sugary craving.
Featuring just a few simple ingredients, including fresh cranberries, mini marshmallows & crushed pineapple, tossed in freshly whipped sweetened cream- this Cranberry Fluff Salad is a real treat fit for the whole holiday season, not just the main meal.
