Cranberry Salsa

With Thanksgiving fast approaching – one of my favorite recipes has been on my mind.  I can’t wait to get to the store for supplies to make this.  I’m not a huge fan of Cranberry concoctions… especially those derived from a can.  This recipe provides a unique twist with a little kick!!!!

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 12oz package of Cranberries
1 bunch of Green Onions
2 fresh jalapenos, seeded (or not)
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 bunch of Cilantro (give or take)
2 cups of Sugar (or Xylitol – a plant based sugar substitute that works like a charm)

Lightly blend in food processor to desired consistency.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours.  The longer it sits…the better it gets!

This is great as a garnish or by itself … by the spoonful straight from the fridge! Hey, don’t judge please 🙂

My goal is to help students to feel more comfortable and confident in the social and professional skills; do you know someone who would enjoy this post?  If so, please share it and encourage them to sign up to receive Manner Monday?  I would appreciate it!

    Message: I love, love cranberry salsa. I buy bags of cranberries this time of year and freeze for use the rest of the year…I find cranberry salsa works well w/ pork or chicken. Yummy! (or spread over a block of cream cheese to serve at a party)

    1. Great idea to buy and freeze…Thanks for the tip! I’m dreaming of Cranberry Salsa year round now! 🙂
