How to Make Fresh Cranberry Salad

  3. Mix in the can of crushed pineapple (with juice) and mini marshmallows to bowl with cranberry mixture.
  4. In food processor or mixer add heavy whipping cream, whip it until it forms stiff peaks, add to cranberry mixture, let sit in fridge at least hour.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
