This is the easiest cranberry salsa recipe in existence. If you’re a total purist, make your own cranberry sauce from the directions on a bag of fresh. If you’re in a hurry and have 22 other dishes to make (that’s me), use canned cranberry sauce.
And this isn’t just a Thanksgiving recipe – make it and take to a potluck and you’ll be deemed brilliant and all the other guests will want your recipe. That’s why you go to potlucks, right?
Cranberry sauce (canned or fresh – you choose)
Jalapenos – seeded and deveined and chopped (1 or 2 or 3 – you choose based on who’s eating this salsa and how hot you want it)
½ purple onion, chopped
Fresh cilantro, chopped, at least a tablespoon (again you decide on the amount. At my house we love extra cilantro. At some houses they think it tastes like dirt. I don’t invite those people over. . )
Lime juice (at least a teaspoon, and fresh is better.)
Garlic salt (pinch to taste)
Mix all ingredients together and serve with corn chips OR fresh veggies for dipping.
