MINE: Cranberry Salsa!


This is a beautiful, delicious, sweet and tangy salsa to which I was introduced by a lovely lady in my life, my 21-year-old daughter! Thanks, 21-year-old girl. I LOVE it that we share recipes with each other! She found this recipe at, our family's favorite recipe site. This salsa is especially delectable on poultry dishes such as chicken enchiladas, turkey sandwiches, or grilled chicken breasts, or just by itself on tortilla chips. Enjoy!

Combine cranberries, cilantro, green onions, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a medium blade. Chop to medium consistency. Refrigerate if not using immediately. Serve at room temperature.

I liked the sound of Pam's orzo and veggie soup last week too - it's perfect for this time of year. Your cranberry salsa sounds wonderful - what a great twist on tomato salsa! I've linked up a Mediterranean Vegetable Tart that is super easy to make. Thank you for hosting.

I love, love, LOVE allrecipes. Makes life so much easier when you're trying to come up with a recipe based on certain things in your house. :)

That salsa looks fabulous. And I bet it's heaven on leftover turkey sandwiches!

I wish I'd had that cranberry salsa recipe when we still had turkey. We had four young men staying with us who are biking across america and they had BIG appetites. Good to see your kids yesterday. Sorry you had to stay home. Hope the little guy is better.
