This is a perfectly fine salsa for chips or on top of guacamole, but even better with goat cheese on crackers or atop grilled fish, chicken or pork.


  • (12 ounce) bag cranberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 bunch green onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup cilantro (some stems okay)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Place cranberries and garlic in food processor and pulse a few times. Add onions, pepper, lime juice, sugar, salt and cilantro and pulse. Add oil and pulse to desired texture.

    I used more garlic than the recipe called and may cut the amount of sugar the next time I make this. I like my salsa to have more kick; this will replace standard cranberry sauce for all dinners in the future. The flavors blend beautifully; I can’t wait for my guests to try it tomorrow.

    A friend of mine made this for a Christmas party for a dip instead of regular salsa. Everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe.

    This recipe caught my attention on a Today Show segment last year, and quickly became a family/friends favorite! I gave it away as gifts last year, and my daughter ALREADY asked for it this year… more, EASY gift-making – THANK YOU, Yankee Magazine!
