Now that Halloween is over, it’s time to start planning Thanksgiving.  Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce….


It’s no secret in my family that I don’t like cranberry sauce.  Even homemade cranberry sauce is yuck to me.  It’s so gelatinous. And that stuff from the can? Ugh, can’t even think about it! Gross.  But this Cranberry Salsa is sensational!


I’ve actually given this as a hostess gift by putting it in a mason jar with a pretty ribbon.  And you could serve it poured over a block of cream cheese for a party.  Or call it Razorback Cranberry Salsa and serve it at your tailgate tomorrow (like I’m going to do!)  Fresh cranberries are only in stores until December, so hurry and make this salsa now!

Cranberry Salsa


12 oz fresh cranberries
large bunch fresh cilantro
5-6 large green onions, cut into 3 inch pieces
juice of 2 fresh limes
1/2-3/4 cup sugar


Add cranberries, lime juice, cilantro, green onions, and 1/2 cup sugar to the food processor and pulse until combined.  Taste salsa, and add more sugar and salt if necessary.
