Cranberry Fluff Salad

{Grandma W's recipe}

This is for certain my favorite Thanksgiving salad, well, it's really like a dessert with the cream, but who cares, right? I made this recipe yesterday and it seemed to win over the hearts of our fellow gluttonous friends. More Thanksgiving Day recipe successes to come!!

2 c. cranberries, ground (via food processor, blender, etc)

3 cups marshmallows- mini kind

1 cup granulated sugar

2 red delicious apples, skins on, diced

1 cup red grapes, halved

1 cup whipped cream

Combine the cranberries, marshmallows, and sugar. 'Marinate' or chill overnight. Two hours prior to serving, add the remaining ingredients, chill again, then serve. Make sure you don't over stir once the whipped cream is in or else you will loose all the fabulous volume it gives this salad!!
