Cranberry Salsa

Living in Texas, salsa is always a must. This holiday version is fresh and delicious. It can be served with crackers or tortilla chips as an appetizer or right along with the turkey as part of the main meal. I like to serve it as is, but it is also delicious served over a block of cream cheese and crackers. It goes very well with most proteins, such as poultry, beef or pork. It is best to let it sit covered in the refrigerator for a little while before serving, so that the flavors can blend. Enjoy!


  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and coarsely chopped ( feel free to leave the seeds if you like a little more spice)

  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
