Recipe Notes

How long does Cranberry Fluff last?

I find that the salad is best when served within a few hours of preparation. If you want to prepare it a day in advance, just be sure to give everything a good stir right before serving.

The fruit releases some juices as it sits, so while the cranberry salad still tastes delicious on Day 3 or Day 4, it tends to get a bit watery and doesn't have as much "fluff" to it.
