This Cranberry Fluff Salad is so easy and makes for the perfect holiday side dish. If you are fan of Ambrosia Salad, you will LOVE it! You will find tons of Pineapple, marshmallow, Cool-Whip, and cranberry flavors.
Cranberry Fluff Salad
My hubby and I love Homemade Cranberry Sauce, it just completes our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. The kiddos, on the other hand, are not big fans. They like cranberry mixed into dishes like our Cranberry Apple Walnut Stuffing. Trying to convince them how tasty cranberry sauce is just isn’t happening. I have given up, ha ha.
Since they enjoy Ambrosia Salad, I figured I would throw together this Cranberry Fluff Salad that will be perfect to include with our Thanksgiving dinner this year. I have yet to allow them to try this salad because the hubby and I have decided we are going to enjoy this dish ourselves, lol.
The addition of the pineapple and marshmallow fluff really tames the tartness of the cranberries. I know they are going to LOVE it as much as Mike and I did.
I love that this salad can be made super quick on Thanksgiving morning and tossed in the fridge to be ready when guests arrive. Just five simple ingredients and you have one amazing side dish to serve.
14 oz Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
20 oz drained Crushed Pineapple
8 oz thawed Cool Whip
3.5 oz Marshmallow Creme
3 cups Mini Marshmallows
Stir together cranberry sauce and pineapple in a large bowl.
In another bowl combine cool Whip and marshmallow creme until well blended.
Fold mini marshmallows and fruit mixture into whipped topping mixture until well distributed.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
