Fresh Cranberry Salsa

It's cranberry season, so it's time to resurrect one of my favorite recipes. I originally posted it here. If you are a cranberry fan, then it's a MUST try. If you aren't a big fan but like fruit & salsa, then try it out! I had planned on sharing some of this batch with a friend, but I could not stop eating it so I'll have to make another. Serve this at your next holiday party and get rave reviews!!
 Fresh Cranberry Salsa

12 oz package fresh cranberries
1/4 C green onion, chopped
1/4 C cilantro, chopped
1 small jalapeno pepper, optional
1 C sugar
1/4 t cumin
2 T juice from lime or lemon
dash salt

I chop the cranberries in the food processor and the rest by hand. Put everything in the bowl and then stir. It's good right away, but even better the next day. I have jalapeno listed as optional, but I recommend at least a little bit. I am sitting here eating this as I type up the post!

  7. Hi, I found this linked to the Holiday Blog Hop of Goodies--I love fresh cranberries, I make a cranberry/orange relish during the holiday that has just a bit of bite to it, but this looks like it takes it to a whole new level. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Diana,
    Yum, cranberries are the best for their color alone! Tart cranberries, sweet sugar, hot jalapenos...winner. I bet is would be good with cinnamon chips to dip. Thanks for sharing.

  28. Spicy! I've never been a fan of cranberry sauce (my mom swears we had it every year, but I don't remember it being there until after I was married!) But I bet Hubby would L-O-V-E your spicy version! My sister and BIL too!

  34. Diana, that sounds DELICIOUS!!!!!! Do you cook the cranberries first... or do you just use them straight out of the bag?

  35. Oh, nothing wrong with this! This is going right on my board of recipes to make.

  36. THis is delicious but I haven't made it with cumin before. That's an interesting idea. Before I saw your link up, I linked up my post about it too! Except I talk about how this year, I left out the sugar and just about dropped dead when I tasted it! I might never be able to eat it again with that memory in my tastebuds!!
