Cranberry-Grape Salad ~ A Holiday Favorite

Cranberry-Grape Salad

Are you looking for a special holiday side dish that’s sure to please?Well, then, you have to try this one! This is a recipe from my husband’s family. It’s a favorite that everyone expects to find on the table for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I actually asked for my mother-in-law’s permission so that I could safely share her recipe for Cranberry-Grape Salad without fearing for my life. (Just kidding!)

It’s a pretty simple recipe, the main thing is that you will want to make this salad well ahead of time – the day before, if possible.

Prepping doesn’t take too long, especially with the help of a few small appliances. I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours does!

My KitchenAid food processor makes quick work of chopping the cranberries.


Each of the ingredients prepped (the grapes are underneath).


All of the ingredients mixed together before adding the whipped cream.


I whipped the cream with my KitchenAid mixer and added it to the rest of the ingredients. After folding it in, I covered it and put it in the refrigerator to meld overnight.
