Nani's Cranberry Whip Salad

This is a family favorite. Its been around forever & its always served at Thanksgiving & Christmas. This amount serves 20ish people a decent spoonful for a side dish or dessert, plus leftovers.

4 cans of Ocean Spray whole-berry cranberry sauce (don't try using jelly, it won't work)
4 small tubs of Cool Whip
bags of mini marshmallows
  • Put cranberry sauce into a mesh sieve over a bowl or the sink. 
  • Mix a bit so it isn't "can shaped" anymore. 
  • Let sit a while (20-30mins) so some of the juices can run off. 
  • Juices can be dumped.
  • After the sauce has sat a bit put it into a large bowl.
  • Mix with all remaining ingredients. 
  • Cover with plastic wrap & let sit a few hours (overnight) before serving.
  • YUM!
My grandma likes to add chopped pecans. I leave them out. I also go heavy on the mallows.
