Sweet & Tangy Cranberry Salsa from Clearly Delicious



A simply amazing recipe for Cranberry Salsa by Helana Brigman from Clearly Delicious.  A sweet and tangy colorful salsa that is sure to be a hit. Helana suggests serving the salsa with tortilla chips, but I think it would also make a wonderful accompaniment to grilled chicken or pork as well.
Looking for something to do with after-Christmas cranberries? Pulse cranberries together with tex mex ingredients (jalapeño, cilantro, lime) for a sweet and spicy salsa that’s perfect for the new year.
Although I don’t eat cranberries nearly as much as most people during the holidays (I didn’t even have cranberry sauce on Christmas – shock!), I’m hunkered down and snacking on this salsa for several days.  The semi-sweet and spicy texture makes for a vibrant and fresh dip that is just made for a salty tortilla chip and gets better the next day after the fruits have macerated overnight in the fridge.
Have leftover cranberries, but can’t stand another batch of homemade sauce? Try this fun take on an otherwise neglected berry for an afternoon snack or tapas with friends.  It may be after New Years or Christmas, but one bite, and I’m certain your friends will ask, “Wow, what is this?”
