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!

Cranberry Pear Salsa
makes about 1 1/2 cups of salsa
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
1 anjou pear, peeled and chopped
1 large apple, peeled and chopped
1/4 red onion, chopped
1/2 jalapeno, chopped
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
the juice of two limes
the juice of one orange
4 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and season with additional salt or honey if desired.


  1. Mmmm this looks so incredibly good! Tortilla chips are one of my favourite treats! I have never tried cranberry salsa but definitely want to give it a whirl over the upcoming holidays!

  2. What a cool idea! I love cranberry sauce so much, but it's just me so I feel guilty making it for myself. But I bet I can convince more people to dig into the salsa!

  3. Mmm your cranberry salsa sounds amazing and would perfect for the holidays! Love your blog, new follower! Feel free to check out the $50 Williams-Sonoma gift card giveaway going on over at my blog right now! xoxo
