I make this salad all year long, but it is especially great for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just freeze a few bags of cranberries to use at a later date. I know this will become a tradition to anyone who tries it, it's delicious! Garnish with frosted cranberries and mint leaves, if desired. For frosted cranberries, wet cranberries with water, and roll in sugar.

  • In a medium bowl, combine cranberries, apple, celery, grapes, raisins, walnuts, sugar, cinnamon, and yogurt. (I chop cranberries in a food processor, and it works great). Toss to coat. Cover, and chill 2 hours. Stir just before serving.

When I read the ingredients, I wasn't about to even taste this salad. But when I did, wow! I couldn't believe how good it was. I added a little more sugar and cinnamon to it but other than that. It was awsome. Read More

All of the different fruits together were very pretty but no one in my house including me liked the yogurt at all. Waldorf = mayo. Read More

I made this to go with Christmas dinner. It was wonderful. What I really liked is that I could still eat the left overs two days later and it was not soggy at all. I will definately make this again. Read More

This recipe has become a Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition at our house. The first time I made it, I used a food processor on the fresh cranberries and there was a lot of tart juice, which I didn't really like. Now I freeze the berries first, then cut them into quarters. It takes a lot longer, but it tastes sweeter, I think, because the juice isn't mixed into the yogurt. Fabulous recipe! Read More

This is a wonderful salad but I thought the cranberry apple ratio should have been more apple less cranberries. Also I believe red grapes would add more flavor. This could also be used as a dessert! Read More

Good salad for adults. The fresh cranberries make the salad quite tart. I tripled the sugar and it countered the tartness. Overall hit with family during Thanksgiving. Read More

I made this tonight and it was absolutely wonderful with great texture and flavors. The cinammon makes it especially great. I didn't change a thing. My husband loved it too and we both had two huge helpings! It was also quick and easy to prepare. Thanks for a great recipe Thea! Read More
