Growing up, along with Grandpa’s Green Beans, I loved my mom’s (or was it my Grandma’s?) sweet and creamy cranberry salad served every Thanksgiving. My cousin and I would scoop out large cupfuls of the leftovers for a snack the next day-so good. In this cranberry salad, fresh cranberries are mixed with apples, pineapple and chopped nuts, and then sweetened and dolled up with whipped cream. In this version I used coconut cream for a dairy free version, but I also give an option for whipped cream too.
There are two types of cranberry salads. One is tarter and simple, usually used as a condiment to go with the turkey. Another is more like a dessert. This one is definitely more like a dessert-which is why I loved it even as a child. But grown ups like it too!
