Cranberry Apple Salad

This pretty pink fruit salad is easy to make and will feed a crowd.  A nice change from your everyday salad, and it has a lot of great textures going on.  This needs to set up in the fridge before serving, so it is also a great make ahead side to add to any meal.
I received this recipe from a RS apple activity; not sure who to claim as the owner.  I followed exactly except I cut the marshmallow quantity in half.

Cranberry Apple Salad
1 lb. cranberries, frozen
1 c. sugar
16oz. crushed pineapple
5-8 apples
1 pint whipping cream
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 lb. mini marshmallow

Put frozen cranberries in a food processor and pulse until rough chopped.
In a large bowl, add chopped cranberries, sugar and crushed pineapple.
Let sit in fridge (marinate) over night or for several hours.

A few hours before serving:
Dice apples and stir into cranberry mixture.
Prepare whipping cream, adding sugar and vanilla.
Fold whipped cream and marshmallows into salad.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
