Cranberry Jalapeno Salsa Recipe


Cranberries are a ďmust haveĒ component of every Thanksgiving dinner, but often the canned variety goes untouched. Hereís a favorite family recipe for Cranberry Jalapeno Salsa that will leave even the cranberry haters begging for more. Itís great served as an appetizer (serve it early so that guests wonít be too full for dinner), or a condiment along with the turkey. It can be stirred into softened cream cheese for a wonderful dip, or simply poured over a block of cream cheese and served with crackers and/or tortilla chips. Itís colorful so it will be noticed on the table, and since itís best made the day before, it can sit in the fridge on the busy day and wonít take time away from preparing the actual dinner. As a bonus, itís even low-calorie and contains no fat, so those who are watching their weight (a travesty over the holidays) can indulge.
