Create this fresh cranberry salsa for your next holiday gatherings.
It is cranberry season, so it’s time to post one of my favorite recipes. If you are a cranberry fan, then it is a MUST try.
If you are not a big fan but like fruit and salsa, then I think you should still try it.
I had planned on sharing some of this batch with a friend, but I could not stop eating it so I will have to make another.
Serve this at your next holiday party and get rave reviews!! It is so good that this recipe was featured at Redbook Magazine.
Cranberry season is one of my favorite times of the year. It is such a short season, but I take advantage of it fully. In addition to this salsa, you should check out my popular Fresh Cranberry Relish.
It is quite easy to make if you have a food processor or hand chopper. I like to make it up a little ahead of time so that the flavors have a little time to mingle.
It is good right away, but even better the next day. I am not a fan of hot things, but the sweet provides quite a contrast to the pepper so I recommend 2 jalapenos. I am sitting here eating this as I type up the post!
I would eat this year around if cranberries were always in season. I made it with some fresh cranberries that I froze, but it just did not turn out right. My recommendation is to not use frozen cranberries in a recipe, unless you will be cooking it.
