Delicious Cranberry Salsa Served Over Cream Cheese

posted by:

Disclaimer: I’m not a fan of cranberries but I can’t get enough of this delicious cranberry salsa served over cream cheese. My friend Eva regularly brings this dish to our Christmas potlucks and I love it. It’s perfect for Christmas but gosh darn it if I’m not adding it to our Thanksgiving line-up. You can either serve it with your turkey or as a side or appetizer while people are waiting for your turkey to cook. As as bonus, it’s totally easy.

Every year, my family participates in Volunteers of America’s service project to serve Thanksgiving dinner to low-income seniors. This year, I brought our cranberry salsa and it was a hit! Talk about the perfect way to spend this holiday–in service and sharing a delicious meal. Enjoy!



1 – 12 oz. package of fresh or frozen cranberries
3/4 c. sugar
1 medium jalapeno, cut into quarters
1 green onion, cut into quarters
1-2 teaspoons fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon cumin

Put all ingredients into a food processor. Process until mixture is coarsely chopped. (Don’t overchop–you need chunks not soup). Store in refrigerator overnight to allow flavors to blend.

Serve over a block of cream cheese with crackers or any other way you want to.

Makes about 3 cups.
