Cranberry Salsa

This year for our cranberry sauce we had cranberry salsa. I found this recipe on this AWESOME blog. There is no way I can take any credit for this recipe whatsoever. It's too delicious, no one would ever believe I really created it anyway :-P

You have to make this. Besides the fact that it's incredibly-can't-stop-yourself-from-eating-it delicious, it's really good for you too! Which is something to be said for a Thanksgiving dish.

Cranberries are a good source of Vitamin E and Vitamin K, and a very good source of Vitamin C and Fiber. Plus they're a low calorie, low carb, no-fat food. Woohoo!

Go make this recipe ASAP, and then eat it on everything. - I doubled the recipe for Thanksgiving and when my mom served it with appetizers she piled it on top of a block of cream cheese- yumm!
