This creamy cranberry salad reminds me so much of the amazing ambrosia salad that I had weekly at church potluck many years ago. Cranberry salad recipe should be on every Thanksgiving or Christmas Feast. Personally, I treat it like dessert even though it is traditionally served as a holiday side.
This year I decided to bend the rules and include cranberry fluff salad, a festive fruit salad, after tinkering with different recipes I saw online I decided to go with a loaded recipe that includes, crushed pineapples, chopped crunchy apples, grapes, pecans. It will go well with Mashed Potatoes, Lentil Meatballs.
Traditionally vegans weren't able to enjoy cranberry fluff salad because it contained traditional dairy whipped cream or sour cream and cream cheese. Also, the marshmallow contained gelatin made from skin, cartilage, and bones of animals.
You can actually make your own coconut whipped cream by sticking 2 cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight, the following morning open the cans carefully and drain off the clear liquid. Scoop out the thick white coconut cream into a bowl and whip with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
You can also make your own vegan marshmallows but this is a recipe that you can make last minute, you just dump the fruits and crushed nuts in a bowl and stir in the Cocowhip and marshmallows.
