This salad is refreshing! A delicious marriage of sweet and tart, this dish combines a variety of various textures and is pleasingly colorful!

While you do have to mix the cranberries, marshmallows and sugar the night before, it's easy to toss together in minutes. Just about everyone asks for the recipe and they are surprised to find out how simple it really is! Use your favorite type of nuts, or a mixture. (I personally love pecans!) :-) Enjoy!
