Tasty Tuesday: Cranberry Salsa

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, we made lots of good food over Thanksgiving weekend. I’ve decided to share one particular recipe with you because it’s so strange and wonderful.

I don’t know where this Cranberry Salsa recipe came from originally, but my father acquired it from his sister. I made it last year for Thanksgiving too. It’s a great way to use cranberries while they’re in season! You can adjust the spiciness by adding more or less jalapeño—same goes with sweetness and the sugar. Overall, it’s a pretty sweet dip that is a nice change of pace from the usual creamy options and is much healthier.

Tasty Tuesday: Cranberry Salsa

Cranberry Salsa is a pretty sweet and spicy dip that is a nice change of pace from the usual creamy options and is much healthier. The combination of cilantro, jalapeños, and green pepper with the fresh cranberries result in a colorful and festive dip!


  • 1-12oz pkg. cranberries, chopped
  • 1/4 c green onion, chopped
  • 1/4 c green pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 c cilantro, chopped
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, deseeded and chopped
  • 1/4 c fresh lime juice (approx. 2 fresh limes)
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t cumin


  1. Mix thoroughly and refrigerate at least 30 min. Serve with tortilla chips.

I highly recommend using a food processor for the cranberries. The onion, cilantro, and peppers I just chop finely by hand.

Hope you find this Cranberry Salsa recipe as tasty as we do!
