The fruits contribute a natural sweetness that harmonizes with the cranberries, while also providing a medley of textures.
In some variations, miniature marshmallows are incorporated, adding a soft and pillowy element to the mix. Chopped nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, bring a satisfying crunch that enhances the overall texture of the salad.
