My daughters love this salad!  It’s as though the fresh tart flavor of cranberries meets ambrosia salad in the delicious side!

We have served Ambrosia Salad with turkey dinner or at potlucks for as long as I can remember.

It was always a favorite of mine as a kid because I felt like I got to eat dessert for dinner.  In fact, my youngest daughter makes the ambrosia salad at our house and the girls literally fight over the leftovers.

You can certainly use a store bought whole berry cranberry sauce in place of the homemade version (in step one of this recipe) but the homemade version tastes about 10000x better.

It has more of a fresh tart flavor and it’s not as sweet as the store bought variety.  Not only that, it’s SO easy to make… just a 3 items in a pot and let it boil 10 minutes.

Don’t worry too much if your cranberry sauce seems a little runny, it thickens as it cools.

  1. I cant stop starring at the images of this salad. I just love the color and all the different ingredients that have been used blend so well together. Its definitely going to be a hit with the kids.

  2. Made this for Thanksgiving 2017 exactly as written. It was delicious!!! The leftover cranberry sauce was devoured too! The sour cream and home made cranberry sauce put this over the the top.

  3. Love this salad. But i add 3 stalks celery sliced thin, three bartlett pears, chunked up, and 3 honeycrisp appkes chunked up.

  4. A holiday tradition from childhood. We always used a pint of heavy whipping cream beat stiff instead of sour cream or yogurt. It can be streamlined with Splenda. Love it!

  5.  This is the best dessert ever!! Everywhere I take it people just love it. Easy to make and not expensive. Yum 

  6. Can the pecans be left out? We don’t like nuts in salads. We could try, though, if leaving them out would change the taste too much.
    Thanks for your time!

  7. Can I add a little cool whip to this without affecting the sour cream so it will be a little sweeter?

  8. Made it with vanilla Greek yogurt- gave it a nice sweet tang versus sour cream. Just make sure you drain the pineapple well and that the mini marshmallows are fresh and not sticking together- made this in 92 degree weather and the marshmallows were clumping 

  9. Very good!!!

  10. Great recipe. Wondering if this can be made ahead and frozen.

  11. Hi Holly! Happy Thanksgiving! I made your cranberry fluff recipe yesterday and it was delicious! I am planning on making your cranberry millionaire salad tomorrow. I especially loved the cream cheese / heavy whipping cream / sugar mixture that was the base of the cranberry fluff. Do you think I could take that base and mix with the rest of the ingredients in the Cranberry millionaire salad and it work? Not trying to change your recipe, just combining two or your awesome ideas!! I just really enjoyed the base on the cranberry fluff. My son enjoyed it very much as well. Just wanted to see your thoughts.

    • I love swapping up recipes and trying new things!! I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure but I don’t see any reason it wouldn’t work. If you do try it, I’d love to hear how it works out for you!

  12. I don’t understand why it says to use only 1.5 cups of the cranberry mixture. What are you supposed to do with the rest of it. Throw it away???

  13. Readers go by the recipe as posted it’s really delicious! If allergic to an ingredient simply change that ingredient IT will or can change the taste of the recipe It’s not the person fault if it changes the taste.
    This is a delicious recipe as is

  14. I was wondering if I could make it with half sour cream and half yogert?

  15. I was wondering what your thoughts were about substituting the pecans for walnuts? I bought the wrong bag and already opened it!

  16. Made this Recipe last year and family loved it as much as the Turkey! Making it again this year, of course. I’m seriously considering reading the whole comment trail for this recipe at the holiday table because it read like a “Who’s on First?” skit!! Hehe…Thanks, Holly!

  17. Whole group loved this!! Made it for Thanksgiving last year and I was told I had t make it for Christmas as well.

  18. Can you use a can of cranberries?

  19. If I’d rather not buy cinnamon sticks, is there a way to boil the cranberries with ground cinnamon instead?

    • I have only tried this with a cinnamon stick. If you do make this using ground cinnamon, I would suggest you start with a very small amount (1/8 tsp) and add more if needed. I’d love to hear how it works out for you if you do try it. Enjoy!

  20. I have a family member that is allergic to coconut what can I substitute coconut with in this salad can you let me know right now

    • While I’ve only tried the recipe as written, you can try adding some extra nuts (although I wouldn’t suggest adding an extra two cups, that would probably be way too much). Maybe some dried cranberries as well just to make up some extra volume as this recipe contains quite a bit of coconut.

  21. This looks & sounds delightful! I will be trying this for Thanksgiving this year & again for Christmas if it’s a big hit. I do have a silly question though, and I apologize if it’s already been answered and I overlooked it….the last step where it says to let sit for 4 hours, do you mean refrigerate for 4 hours?? Thanks!

  22. AMAZING!!! The best cranberry salad ever.

  23. If u use whip creme in place of the sour creme do u use the same amount of whip creme

  24. I’m definitely going to try this. We use a different cranberry salad recipe, but this looks so good. My daughter doesn’t like coconut, but I love it. I’m going to chop the coconut finer and cook it with the cranberries. I hope it won’t change the final result. Thanks for the recipe.

  25. Cannot use marshmallows.  Any thoughts for substitute?

    • The marshmallows add sweetness and soak up a lot of the liquid. I wouldn’t suggest leaving them out.

      • The lady asked if you could leave the marshmallows out, Could you cut back on the water and eliminate the need for marshmallows and add some splenda?

        • I’ve only made this as written so it’s hard to say how it would change the recipe. The marshmallows add sweetness, a bit of bulk plus change the consistency of the recipe. If you try it without, please let us know how it goes.

  26. I haven’t made it yet; however, I plan to on Thanksgiving as it sounds delicious – love the tart/sweet aspect of it.  BUT I do have a question….how many servings for this recipe?  I think this is such an important part of a recipe in order to be able to know how much to add for more people or take away for fewer people.  Thanks!

    • Once mixed together this makes closer to 5-6 cups of Millionaire Salad (so you could likely get 8-10 servings per salad) as it settles even more once it sits.

  27. How many does this serve?  This, to me, is such an important part of a recipe.  Thanks!  It looks delicious and I like the tart/sweet aspect of it – will be making this for Thanksgiving

  28. Ok the video says boil for 10 minutes the printed version says simmer 10 min. Also the recipe says to stir 1 1/2 c cranberry mixture with other ingredients, so what do you do with extra cranberry mixture? 
    Recipe says let sit overnight, video says refrigerate 4 hours. 
    So much conflict.

    • You can let it sit at least 4 hours or up to overnight. We enjoy the extra cranberry sauce with turkey or even mixed into yogurt or over ice cream. :) Enjoy!

  29. I haven’t tried this yet, but my family loves the millionaire salad with cherry pie filling…we usually just have canned cranberry sauce with Thanksgiving/Christmas dinners…but I think I’m going to make this recipe this year and see how it goes over…it definitely sounds & looks good…and since I’ve had a chance to read the comments I don’t think I’ll have any problem following the directions – LOL

  30. I would boil the cranberries in the drained pineapple juice. Maybe a little less sugar since the pineapple juice is sweet already.

  31. this looks wonderful I going to make it for my family

  32. I leave out the sour cream and coconut and add a big box of red jello, any flavor. I add diced peeled apples and orange bits without membranes. I drain the pineapple (crushed or tidbits), too. It sets up well in the fridge.

  33. This now my favorite recipe!! I love it!! I made it for Christmas Eve and it was a huge hit. Very simple to make and directions couldn’t be easier. Thanks for sharing!

  34. Penny,

    I can’t wait to try this.

  35. This is my new favorite! Thank you for sharing!

  36. Have made this numerous time…great recipe and delicious. Thanks.

  37. I made 3 batches of this lovely creation since Thanksgiving. The 3rd batch was a double for an event at our church. EVERYONE loved it, except those who have a “texture” problem. I did not use the cinnamon when preparing my cranberries, maybe next time. In the last batch, I added 2 cups of the prepared cranberry sauce and liked it even better!
    And I used Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream. It was great and my “fitness freaks” loved it!! lol
    Love, Love, Love this recipe! Thank you for sharing!!! Katherine

  38. Made this for Thanksgiving, I loved it went very well with turkey. Leftovers were great for a dessert.

  39. This salad was fantastic!!! Very refreshing! I will be making again at Christmas!
    Actually, probably several more times!

  40. Not being a huge fan of cranberries, I was reluctant to try this. I screwed up & accidentally put in a whole cup of sugar & I just added all the cranberry mixture with all the rest. It was fantastic. Making this again. Thank you…oh, and it was not too sweet with the extra sugar.

  41. This recipe was a little confusing. … It should have said AHEAD of time that you didn’t need as much cranberry sauce (we had previously made cranberry sauce), the cinnamon stick (obviously take it out), and I think if you use sour cream, 2 cups is way too much. It was so overpowering. We had 18 people at Thanksgiving and EVERYONE made a comment on it – “next time use the yogurt”. I have so much left over, and there’s only 2 in my own family. So disappointed.

  42. Made this for thanksgiving this year. everyone loved it. So easy, made the day before.

  43. Way too tart for me. It looked so pretty that I thought it would be sweet.

  44. How long will this last for?

  45. I have made this both way with the sour cream and also with cool whip as my granddaughter has a dairy allergy. Both ways are good, the one with the cool whip is not overly sweet but is thicker than the one made with the sour cream.

  46. What if I got unsweetened coconut?

  47. My cranberries are boiling now!! I’m tmqkong this dish to take to my In Laws tomorrow!! I doubled the recipe! I don’t want the cinnamon to be over powering. Should I take the cinnamon sticks out right after boiling or leave them in while the cranberry sauce cools? Thanks for this wonderful recipe! I can’t wait to share it with the family tomorrow!!

  48. can I substitute walnuts for pecans?

  49. Do we need to take out the cinnamon stick?

  50. This was delicious! Not sure why others were confused. You end up with about 2 cups of the cranberry sauce when cran berries cook down. I just added it all in together. It was perfect! It’s a winner.

  51. “Let sit 4 hours or overnight” – I assume that means in the refrigerator. Please let me know. Thank you.

  52. How far ahead of time can you make this? If I make it this afternoon and refrigerate it, will it get soggy?

  53. It doesn’t do to get old!!! I decided to make this for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I thought I had everything I needed except for the sour cream and pineapple TIDBITS. So, special trip to the store.
    Got my cranberries done and cooled. Opened the can of CRUSHED pineapple – oops #1. Decided no big deal used it anyway.

    Then grabbed the sour cream only to find out I grabbed cottage cheese instead – oops #2. Decided what the heck, used it instead.

    The mini marshmallows I thought I had were the very large ones instead – oops #3 – kitchen scissors to the rescue.

    I tasted it and not bad. Hopefully it will be even better tomorrow after the flavors blend.

  54. 3 cups? or 24 Oz of fresh?????

  55. I don’t like cranberries I wonder if I could substitute with celery? Haha just kidding. This recipe sounds perfect. The instructions are perfectly clear. I just read al the comments and sometimes I really worry about our society lol. Super excited about this recipe!!!

  56. Good stuff. Don’t sneak a taste before it’s all together….it’s all the flavors combined that compliment each other that makes this work. (From a life long sneak taster).

  57. I made the Cranberry Millionaire Salad. Recipe called for 1 1/2″ of the cranberry sauce that I cooked up. What are you to do with rest of this sauce???

  58. how many will the Cranberry salad feed I work at a senior center and they would love this

  59. WOW, I saw nothing hard about following this recipe at all. Common sense would tell you to use the “cooled cranberry sauce” you just made, especially since there was no mention of store bought sauce in the recipe itself – only mentioned in the blog that it could be used INSTEAD. .

  60. No offense, that was the worst recipe I’ve ever read. You listed all of these other ingredients and there’s no mention about what to do with them win. The fact that you have all of these comments asking you should tell you. how about coming back on here and turning this into a recipe that everyone can follow?

  61. Can you substitute Splenda for the sugar?

  62. you use whole cranberry sauce in a can in place of making your own?

  63. I a m making the millionaire salad for how many people is the recipe ?

  64. I’m going to make this and yes the recipe is totally comprehendible so thanks! The one question I did have was how long does it keep? Happy Thanksgiving!

  65. How long will this last if you make ahead of time? Need to make everything 3 days ahead for Thanksgiving and wondering if it will keep.

    • I can’t say for sure, I’ve left it for up to 2 days. You could try mixing the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients and combining them on the day of serving.

  66. Do you put the pecans in whole or break them up?

  67. I’m confused the way the recipe reads. It says add 1 1/2 cups of the cranberry mixture from step 1 and mix well. It doesn’t say how to mix in the rest of the cranberry mixture why doesn’t it just read Mix the 2 different part all together . The wording is not clear.

  68. Can you just use ground cinnamon? I don’t have sticks.

    • I have only tried this with a cinnamon stick. If you do make this using ground cinnamon, I would suggest you start with a very small amount (1/8 tsp) and add more if needed. I’d love to hear how it works out for you if you do try it. Enjoy!

  69. We used all of the cranberry sauce. A little more than called for. But if you have extra mix with butter for biscuits. Yummy

  70. This looks wonderful. But would you be able to substitute cool whip for the sour cream?

  71. Love alot of this recipe. Love to make them.

  72. LOVED your Cranberry Millionaire Salad! I have a family recipe that is similar but with drained fruit cocktail, extra crushed pineapple, marshmallows, sour cream. I love your variation with the cranberries, coconut, and pecans. I never tell company (or grandkids) what’s in it until they try it and always love it. I don’t want to serve a dessert as a salad but I like that it’s inbetween salad and dessert. Sweet but not too sweet. Yummy! Thanks!

  73. Can I add all the cranberries to the recipe.?…. I love cranberries!!! This recipe sounds delicious!!!!!

  74. I don’t like coconut, can I just omit or do I have to substitute with another ingredient.

    • While I’ve only tried the recipe as written, you can try adding some extra nuts (although I wouldn’t suggest adding an extra two cups, that would probably be way too much). Maybe some dried cranberries as well just to make up some extra volume as this recipe contains quite a bit of coconut.

  75. I’m going to assume that this cranberry millionaire salad is refrigerated 4 hours because it doesn’t say so.

  76. Made this a few weeks ago and it was delicious! Making again today for weekend company.

  77. This looks good, except for the fact that I’m not a huge fan of pecans. Just wondering if anyone has tried using a different nut variety, i.e., almonds or filberts?

  78. Any good suggestions for dairy free version for replacement for sour cream or yogurt?

  79. I’m making this for Thanksgiving, easy instructions but I guess some people can’t read and comprehend.
    You must want to say….. replace sugar with ARSNIC! After awhile….. Happy Holidays!

  80. Your directions are easy to understand! As to leftover cranberry sauce, put it in a dish on the table and see what people will do. We are not coconut lovers but I’ve added chopped apple to simmering cranberries many times with good luck so we are going that way. Use the cinnamon stick, all it does is give a touch of flavor where you might ruin the dish by adding too much of it if it’s ground. Someone asked about cream cheese. My experience has been that it clumps into dots all through the salad unless it’s melted and whipped into the salad, which then just breaks the cranberries up. Hope this helps…btw, I’ve been around a long time…have 12 grandchildren and1 great grandchild. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

  81. Can the mini marshmallows be omitted from the millionaire cranberry salad?

  82. can you use ground cinnamon? I have everything but that. i love cranberries and this sounds delicious.

    • I have only tried this with a cinnamon stick. If you do make this using ground cinnamon, I would suggest you start with a very small amount (1/8 tsp) and add more if needed. I’d love to hear how it works out for you if you do try it. Enjoy!

  83. How many servings is this?

  84. I made this recipe, it is GREAT! I love it, I just wish you could include the nutritional values for those of us that are counting calories. :)

  85. I always read reviews before I make a recipe. You my friend are a saint! I applaud your patience. OMG… Some of the questions asked made me comment out loud!

  86. I think it would be less confusing if you said mix the cooled cranberry mixture with remaining ingredients and refrigerate. People wonder what happen to the other 1.5 C of cranberries. I thought maybe part of the recipe was missing. Just a suggestion!

    • Thank you for the suggestion Ricki. The cranberries boil down to create a cranberry sauce and you’ll have about 1 3/4 cups sauce. You may have a little leftover.

  87. Holly, can I substitute Cool Whip for the sour cream/yogurt? Thanks!

  88. Has anyone tried this without coconut or replaced coconut with something else?

    • I am doing it without the coconut and pineapple. We shall see how it turns out. Did it last year per recipe but different family.

  89. Can you taste the skins of the cranberries in this salad?

  90. Am I supposed to use sweetened coconut. ?
    Or unseeetened ?
    Thanks.

  91. Thanks. I am making it now. I can not wait until I get to try this!!

  92. 5 years ago, My oldest niece made fresh homemade cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving Dinner. About an hour after dinner, we noticed one of her cousin’s neck turning red. Turns out she has allergy to fresh cranberries…..had eaten canned/store cranberry sauce previously with no problems. I hope to make this, but will have to use canned!

  93. Can we use ground cinnamon?

    • I have only tried this with a cinnamon stick. If you do make this using ground cinnamon, I would suggest you start with a very small amount (1/8 tsp) and add more if needed. I’d love to hear how it works out for you if you do try it. Enjoy!

  94. I wonder if there might be something that you could substitute for the pineapple? My daughter is allergic to it – loves it, but she can’t have it. There seem to be so many holiday recipes with pineapple in them, and I don’t know if there’s something that would taste as good as the pineapple in them. Thank you for any help!

  95. I will be making this, this year for Thanksgiving. Sounds delish! Thank you for posting!

  96. Why do these recipes never have nutrition information for someone watching their intake?

  97. Did you use sweetened, or unsweetened coconut flakes?

  98. I wonder how this would taste using whipped cream instead of sour cream?

    • Hmm, probably sweeter! I have no issue with readers changing the recipes, and letting me know how the meal turns out!

  99. Have looked for a recipe similar to this for years. Only you freeze it and serve it that way. Do you think you could freeze this one? Or do you know of another one you do freeze? Thank you!

  100. Could this be done with a Splenda type sugar substitute? I would love to make this for Thanksgiving, but have some diabetics coming. Thanks so much.

    • Never mind. I hadn’t read the other comments yet. I may give it a go both ways and see which works best. Thanks.

  101. It looks yummy I will try this thanksgiving

  102. Wonder how cream cheese would taste instead of sour cream..

  103. Is it OK to substitute ground cinnamon for the cinnamon stick? If so, how much ground cinnamon would you use? This looks delicious, and oh so pretty!

    • I have only tried this with a cinnamon stick. If you do make this using ground cinnamon, I would suggest you start with a very small amount (1/8 tsp) and add more if needed. I’d love to hear how it works out for you if you do try it. Enjoy!

  104. I have made this salad for years but ground the fresh cranberries and let them sit overnight with sugar on them. I use crushed pineapple and whip cream and mix it all together the next morning it’s awesome!!

    • That’s the recipe I’ve used too, but I’m going to try this one this year. It’s very easy to understand, but some folks who do little cooking might need every detail instead of what I would call obvious.

  105. This sounds really good. I’m going to have to try this and I have read the comments and I don’t understand why they are even saying they don’t understand the directions. And where they get about adding canned cranberry sauce. THIS is very easy to read n understand. I did have one question and that was about the cinnamon stick to leave it in or take it out. But I saw in the comments what to do . THANKS again and we will be trying this . God bless

  106. Looks so good.

  107. Looks wonderful, sounds easy to make also.

  108. Calories???

  109. Thank you. Will try this year.

  110. Do you used sweetened coconut?

  111. What might be a good substitution for the canned pineapple? Not all of us are pineapple fans. I would think you shouldn’t leave them out without substituting something.

  112. Would love to get this recipe for millionaire cranberry salad

  113. I made this earlier today. I let it set for 8 hours and I did use the pure maple syrup and everyone enjoyed it. I will make it at all holidays. Thank you for the recipes. I try out your recipes before the holidays that way I know what I need to do.

  114. Do you know the nutritional value i.e. carbs per serving? Thank you

  115. This looks great! Is it gluten free? I have a family member that’s gluten intolerant.

  116. This salad sounds really good. I’m going to make it. Thanks for sharing

  117. Thank you for the Cranberry Millionaire Salad recipe. I will be making this for Thanksgiving.

  118. What do you do with the remainder sauce after you use 1 1/2 cup

  119. Do you sell a cook book?

  120. I truly love your Spend with Pennies , know hassle to print off recipes that I want to try, no ads in the middle of recipe. Thank You. Also have enjoyed each recipe that I have tried. Spend with Pennies is my go to place!

  121. It sounds good but when you set let sit overnight is refrigerate…..hanks.

  122. looks fantastic, can’t wait to try it

  123. Yum on all these salads.

  124. Holly, I feel your pain. LOL

  125. I am making your salad tomorrow to have for T’giving. Your instructions are very understandable..not sure why so many had trouble understanding.
    Have a great Thanksgiving.

  126. Can we refrigerate this for two nights?? I want to make it today Tuesday for dinner Thursday. Thanks!!

    • I haven’t left it for 2 days. I do think it would be fine but you could always just make the cranberry portion today and quickly mix the rest together tomorrow evening.

  127. Just want you to know that you’re directions are understandable… I don’t know why everyone is so confused. Thank you for sharing AND dealing with all the confusion…

  128. Instead of using regular sugar I’d use the drained pineapple juice & add some orange juice to make 3/4 c. if necessary or sweeten the 1 c. of water with 1/4 c. pure maple syrup – this will be healthier….. help to keep blood sugar on a more even keel than using refined white sugar.

  129. Can you replace the sugar with Stevia or Splenda??

  130. How many servings does this make..thanks

    • This makes 8 side dish servings.

      • Depends who is eating ;) Delicious. We ate a lot.

      • Using 1 1/2 cups cranberry mixture plus the other ingredients equals 10 1/2 cups. Some have posted that a side serving is half a cup, but based on the 10+ cups, 8 servings would be about 1 1/4 cup. What am I missing? This sounds delish and I am planning on taking it to a gathering for 18 people. If I double it, there will be 21 cups. I want enough, but I do not want way too much.
        Thanks.

        • Once mixed together this makes closer to 5-6 cups of Millionaire Salad (so you could likely get 8-10 servings per salad) as it settles even more once it sits. For 18 people I would suggest doubling the recipe.

  131. Do we remove the cinnamon stick after boiling process complete? Thanks!

  132. Why do we make 3 cups cranberries to end up only using 1.5 cups of the cranberry sauce. Do we double the other ingredients to also. use the remaining 1.5 cups of cranberry sauce?

  133. Still confused. Please confirm that we make and use the boiled cranberries, plus we add 1 1/2 cups of store-bought cranberry sauce?

  134. I’m a little confused by these instructions…1.Combine cranberries, sugar, water and cinnamon stick in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer 10 minutes. Cool completely (sauce will thicken upon cooling).
    2.Add 1½ cups cooled cranberry sauce with remaining ingredients and stir well. Let sit 4 hours or overnight

    Is step 1 the “cooled cranberry sauce” in step 2? Or do I combine step 1 with a cup and a 1/2 of store bought cranberry sauce?

  135. Is the Cranberry Sauce that you add is what you simmered or do you use canned cranberry sauce added to the other ingredients?
