Cranberry Fruit Salad has the great flavor of cranberry, combined with pineapple, mandarin oranges and creamy whipping cream. It is a perfect holiday salad. It is perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas. We like to buy extra bags of fresh cranberries during the holiday season and freeze them to use whenever we want. They freeze well and we can have our favorite foods, made with cranberry, all year long. With only seven ingredients, this salad is not too expensive and it is easy to make. We have many recipes on Sweeter With Sugar we think you will enjoy. Here is the link to our recipe blog. Thank you for your support!

Flavorful and delicious!

Roll some extra fresh cranberries in sugar to decorate.
