BEST Fresh Cranberry Grape Walnut Salad
Nostalgic fresh cranberry salad that is perfect for the holidays, making me think of my Aunt Barbara and mom, Millie.
seedless red grapes
cut in 1/2
toasted and chopped
With a food processor, coarsely pulse and chop the cranberries. Do not grind them too fine; leave in larger chunks (see photo).
In a small bowl, mix together the cranberries and sugar and chill in the refrigerator overnight.
Toast the walnuts either in microwave (2 minutes), or oven. Chop and set aside.
Whip 2 cups whipping cream; add 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.
Leftovers can be frozen and served as a frozen salad later.
