Fluffy, cool and creamy cranberry salad with walnuts and marshmallows! Easy to make ahead and perfect for the holidays!
1 12-ounce package fresh or frozen and thawed cranberries, finely chopped
2 cups granulated sugar
1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple
juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts (I used Diamond of California shelled walnuts)
4 cups mini marshmallows
1 pint heavy cream
Combine chopped cranberries, sugar, pineapple (including juice), lime juice, and walnuts in a bowl and stir. Cover and chill for at least one hour. (or up to overnight)
Add heavy cream to a large bowl. Whip with an electric mixer (you can do it by hand but it will take much longer) until stiff peaks form. Stir in marshmallows. Stir in cranberry mixture. Cover and chill for 4 hours or up to overnight. Serve cold.
