I enjoy trying new recipes; and holidays always seem like a good time to have a combination of new recipes with old favorites.
This year, one of the new recipes I tried was Cranberry Salsa that I saw on Have Recipes - Will Cook. I made a similar recipe a few years ago, but like this one more.
The cranberry salsa was served with cream cheese and crackers.
Cranberry salsa that I made.
It is served on top of cream cheese and crackers.
1 12-ounce bag fresh cranberries, rinsed and picked through for soft or bruised fruit.
¼ cup minced green onions
2 small jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese
Place cranberries in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely chopped (stop before the cranberries turn mushy.) In a large bowl mix together the cranberries, green onions, jalapeno, sugar, cilantro, ginger and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Arrange the cream cheese on a serving platter and cover with the salsa. Serve with crackers.
