Cranberry Salsa

Recently I was looking for a yummy fall hors d'oeuvres and came across a recipe for cranberry salsa. The reviews were fabulous so I decided to give it a try and tweaked the recipe a bit. Do yourself a favor and make this recipe. You will blow your family's mind at Thanksgiving. Plus, it makes a delicious relish for leftover turkey sandwiches. Here is my version:

Cranberry Salsa:
1 bag of cranberries, rinsed
1 navel orange, (zest beforehand) and chopped
1 1/2 T. crystallized ginger (coarsely chopped)
2 jalapeno peppers (seeded and chopped)
3/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2-3/4 cup sugar to taste 

Chop (finely) the cranberries in the food processor. Remove to a bowl. Put all the other pre-chopped ingredients into the food processor with the sugar. Once blended mix all in the bowl. Chill for at least two hours. Enjoy with tortilla chips.

  1. My food processor died a few years ago, so I just ordered one on Amazon specifically to make this salsa! Great idea and will be a hit at thanksgiving. No one likes cranberry sauce anyway
