Cranberry Grape Salad


  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 12 ounces red or green or a combination of seedless grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 pint whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Use a food processor to coarsely to pulse and chop the cranberries. Do not grind them too fine. In a small bowl, mix together the cranberries and sugar and chill in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

Whip the whipping cream with the powdered sugar and vanilla. The whipping cream should be really stiff. In a large bowl, add the cranberry mixture, walnuts, chopped grapes. Fold the thick whipping cream into the cranberry mixture. Gently toss. Chill the salad until ready to serve.
