Cranberry Salsa Recipe

cranberry, pistachio cinamon bread 004

My co-worker had this recipe in her Taste of Home magazine and I, intrigued, quickly copied it down. It sounded like a easy to make, delicious alternative to summer’s salsas and a great way to use the seasonal fruits (cranberries) that are available now.

This is whipped up in the food processor so it couldn't be any easier. It was sweet and tangy while the flavor of the lime really brightened it up. It also has that cinnamon-cumin flavor combo that I love!

It was delicious with chips, but it would also be excellent with some cream cheese on a butter cracker like Ritz. Then you would have that sweet, sour, creamy, salty thing going on. And I bet it would make a wonderful and unique filling in a Butterflied Pork Loin.

I made this last Friday for a potluck and it was a huge hit. Everyone wanted the recipe. I’ll be making it again this week for us at home.

That is something I never would have thought would go together. But it obviously works very well. And I do agree about spreading it on a cracker with cream cheese. Mmmmm.

You're right, that does sound pretty wild! But I checked it out, and I think I like it. That sweet and spice (heatwise) sounds like a real winner. Add a little zing for the winter :)

I don't get it with these sweet salsa's. I like savory, garlic salsa's and that's how they are traditionally made in Mexico. I'm telling you, cranberry salsa you're not going to find in the home country Mexico.
