I gave this as gifts this year in little canning jars. Everyone wanted the recipe. Just a tip - it tastes better after at least a day in the fridge. Add sugar to taste..I probably cut out about a 3rd of it, and increased the peppers because I like it hot!
I make this and spoon it over cream cheese. Let it set in the refrigerator over night so it blends some with the block of cream cheese (make sure and poke holes in the block of cream cheese. Serve with crackers. I won 1st place on a radio station Thanksgiving contest for this salsa dip recipe.
I've made this recipe, but decreased the sugar to 1/2, 1 lime & 2 jalepenos. Soooo yummy. The best thing you can do though, is dump the salsa over a cube of cream cheese. It's so pretty too. Serve with tortillas chips and/or crackers.
This is a great recipe! The color, texture and flavor of sweet & spicy is perfect. I adjust the peppers for my kids, but I like it with a little more kick than they do. p.s. the longer it sits the more hot it becomes and it saves in the fridge for 7-9 days.
I made this for Thanksgiving, and it was a huge success with the whole family. I spread cream cheese on a platter and spread the salsa over the top of the cream cheese with whole berries for garnish--a great balance of flavors and pretty, too. This will be a regular for future holidays.
WOW! What a wonderful way to have fresh cranberries! Love all the fresh ingredients. As a bonus it's simple and easy to make. My family loved it so much the only thing we served it with was a fork!
This is better than the low-calorie recipe I lost and was looking for! I substitued 1/2 cup Splenda for the sugar and added a splash of orange juice. I have made this recipe before with dried cilantro (2TBLS) and it turns out okay - fresh is definitely better, though!
I have a recipe very similar that calls for 1/2 cup honey..its as follows: 3 c frozen cranberries, 1/2 med medium red onion, chopped, 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded & chopped, 1/2 cup cilantro fresh, 1/2 cup honey, 2 T fresh lime juice and 1 T grated orange rind. Cover and chill 8 hrs. Always YUM
MD Anderson suggests this for healthy living to their cancer patients. It's fantastic! My mother lost the recipe and said that this one is close enough. Cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and she uses orange zest as in addition to the other stuff. We leave off the jalapenos for a more mild salsa...but personally...I like the jalapenos! Pour over cream cheese for sure! However, I could just eat this with a spoon! :) UPDATE::: My mom found her recipe! ADD GINGER!! 2 Tablespoons of fresh ginger and 4 green onions. Hers only calls for 1/4 cup of the cilantro. ENJOY!
Wow, interesting and different and... really good! I wasn't sure about this at first, it had a strange bitter taste. But I'm glad I followed the suggestion of making it ahead of time (made it in the AM), put holes in the cream cheese, and put it in the fridge to let the flavors blend. Much better with some time. My guests loved it! Also started with 1/2 the sugar and added more to taste.
I am so thrilled to have found this recipe. I tried it once at a party where it was served over cream cheese and with crackers and I loved it. I asked the hostess how she made it and low-and-behold I'd already forgotten by the end of the day. So I did a search and this is it! In another recipe I found, they used honey instead of sugar and also chopped up dried apricots to add to this but it isn't necessary. This is tangy with a little bit of spice. Thanks for posting!
Very, very good! I made this to spoon over some smoked chicken enchiladas, and it gave a perfect finish to the dish. I did use poblano instead of a jalepeno. Rather than dump everything in a food processor, I processed the cranberries a cup at a time in a mini-chopper until the texture was right. Finely hand chopped the green onions, cilantro and pepper and stirred all of it up in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Refrigerated overnight and it was wonderful. I may try to cut back a bit on the sugar or substitute honey the next time, but it's just about perfect the way it is.
Yummy! This recipe is wonderful without any changes, and I froze half of it since I doubled the recipe. With the other half I did some playing around with by adding fresh ginger and halved raspberries. I blended the base cranberry salsa with cream cheese (added 1/4 c. at a time to get the flavor/consistency I wanted.) Then I topped it with the jazzed up version. It was sublime! Lots of requests for the recipe after family Christmas (from picky eaters, no less).
My 6 year old son is a very picky eater but he loves this salsa. It's a great combination. I did decrease the sugar to 1/2 cup and thought it was still too sweet though. Next time I will reduce it to 1/4 cup.
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was the hit of the party! My husband's family can be very picky and several new recipes that I've made for holidays have fallen flat. This one definitely did not! I used Splenda instead of sugar and it tasted great. I doubled the amount of cranberries, jalapeno and used a big bunch of cilantro and green onions. Instead of doubling the limes, I used 3 total limes and the juice and zest of a small orange. Several people asked for the recipe and I'm sure this will be a staple at all future family get-togethers.
I actually would give this recipe 10 stars, if it weren't for the fact it calls for SO much sugar. I double the recipe and only use 1/4 cup of sugar and it is PERFECT. I make this for family and work all the time and everyone loves it. It's my new favorite food and I keep in the fridge at all times!
I have made this for a few years on Thanksgiving and IT IS SO EASY TO MAKE! Every year I get the same comments: "that is the best salsa I have ever had," "if you make more of that I want to buy some," "how did you do that?" "that is awesome!" and then it quickly disappears. IT IS SO EASY! It is tempting to keep it a secret because IT IS SO EASY and people think I am so awesome, but I always share the recipe and then all of a sudden they seem disappointed that it wasn't some kind of magic that made it so good. I make this because IT IS SO EASY! Your guests will not be disappointed and IT IS SO EASY! DID I MENTION IT'S EASY TO MAKE? The only difference with mine is I used bhut jolokia pepper instead of a jalapeno (a very small one and it was probably a solid medium in heat level rather than mild), a little warm for some so last year I made two batches with one more mild.
I liked it alot but, found it to be more of a relish (which is fine) than salsa. It was much better two days later. I deceided to try it on a turkey hot dog (in the roll), and It was fabulous! I would not hesitate serving it with any turkey dish that's for sure. Thanks for something different : )
This recipe is great! I use to buy Cranberry Salsa from the Elegant Farmer no need anymore. I made it the night before to serve the next day for Christmas Eve. I did add a half of green pepper and half red pepper and used half a large red onion instead of using green onions those were my only changes. It came out FANTASTIC! I served it with tortilla chips. I am going to make it again for New Years Eve!
So easy and so good. I used a little less sugar and 1 tablespoon dehydrated jalapenos and it was still wonderful.
Too sweet for my tastes.
The "fresh market" I went to didn't have fresh or frozen cranberries so I used 2 14oz cans of whole cranberry sauce- I had to make it for a party the next day and didn't have time to store hop. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but it is super-tasty. I just didn't need to add the sugar.
I don't even like cranberries all that much but I LOVE this salsa. And it's so quick and easy to make!
So good and so easy! I used frozen cranberries, so mine was a little cold, but it worked well with tortilla chips and as a side with chicken soft tacos. It was the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors.
A family favorite at the holidays! So good!!!! I add a bit more jalapeno to it for spice
This is a HUGE hit with everyone! The only change I make is to leave out the cilantro (some family members are not a fan of it) and it is DELICIOUS! Showed the recipe to a friend who doesn't like spicy and was afraid of the jalapeño, but once she tried it, she couldn't get enough! Perfect blend with cream cheese and crackers.
This was GREAT! I followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't change a thing. I think it had just the right amount of sugar.
Loved this recipe!! Made it for Christmas and everyone raves about it!!
I love cranberries, so I buy a few extra bags during winter when they're in the stores and freeze them. This looked interesting and different, so I decided to try it. It was a little too sweet, and although it definitely had a good flavor, it was overwhelming. The jalapeno, cranberries, onions and sugar are all strong flavors and it needs something to mellow it a bit. I think I am going to try another reviewer's idea to mix some of it with cream cheese. There is a lot of possibility here, and I love that it is an unusual use of cranberries.
Wonderful recipe that friends and family have enjoyed this year and last at Christmas. If you buy bags of cranberries now, you can keep them up to 1 year in the freezer. I made this recipe in July, too. It's great served over a block of cream cheese (just let it get to room temperature so it's easy to dip). 3/4 cup of sugar was too sweet, so I cut it to 1/2 cup and added a little Splenda if necessary. And I preferred the green onions diced. Instead of 2 limes, I used a little lime juice I had on hand Yummy! Thanks for sharing.
Amazing salsa! It's a big hit any time I bring it somewhere. I add an extra jalapeno pepper to give it some more kick. It's very sweet, so the extra pepper doesn't make it too hot. It's a wonderful alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving cranberry sauce. Also good as a meat marinade.
This was served at a Christmas party I attended with chips--no cream cheese--and was the hit of the party. I came home and found the recipe here, and this is what all my friends are getting in their Christams stocking! I do love it served over cream cheese, helped with the heat. Also used splenda instead of sugar, talk about healthy!
Made this with the Turkey Mercedes this year, and this salsa is a good compliment. Can't wait to use with a turkey sandwich. We will use less cilantro because it was to much even using 1/3 bunch.
Very good. Next time I will reduce the sugar by just a bit.
Made this for thanksgiving. Everyone loved it, they want me to make it for christmas. I used a blender vs food processor.
This was a huge hit at a family gathering. I did use less sugar, added the cilantro to taste, used 1-2 Tbsp of red onion and added more jalapeno. Served it over softened cream cheese using pita crackers with sea salt. I made it the day before so the flavors could meld. I was told by all, that I have to bring this to every gathering. It was delicious and the family gobbled it up in a flash :)
Great for Thanksgiving.
This is so good with lime tortilla chips!
Delicious, different, and super easy!
Wow! This is delicious. Took to a party and everyone loved it. I substituted the sugar for honey and it turned out great.
This was so good. I made it the day before and it was perfect the next day. I also used the leftovers with grilled salmon. great for holiday parties.
My hubby and I loved the fresh taste of this salsa. A keeper. Thanks for sharing it :)
This was a big hit for Thanksgiving! everyone loved it, it adds brightness to the rest of the traditional meal.
I put the cranberrys in the food processor to chop them up. I wish I would have processed them a little longer so that the berry's were a little more even (if they aren't more fine when you eat it you get a big hit of the tart cranberry). Overall we really enjoyed this one and will make again. I served with tortilla chips.
I don't have a good processor so I cut everything by hand. Cranberries were a bit annoying to chop but I'm very happy with how it turned out.
OMG is this ever good! I also reduce the sugar a bit, as noted by other reviewers. What a great way to enjoy fresh cranberries!
I do this one, but I add half an orange chopped up and 2 tablespoons of honey instead of the sugar. It's great with the turkey!
Awesome. We all loved it. Great served with whipped cream cheese and crackers.
Really, really, really tasty. It was a nice substitute for cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving (Canadian Thxgiving).
Oh my gosh, this is suprisingly delicious. I also spread out cream cheese and poured this on top. I used key lime juice instead of fresh limes, and it was still fantastic. This is going to be a holiday favorite.
ok but nothing to write home about. Tried it on top of cream cheese but was still unimpressed.
I wanted to try something diffferent with cranberries for Thanksgiving. Although I was hesitant to try this recipe since I am not a big fan of cilantro. However, when made the day before it is to be served you can't even taste the cilantro as the ingredients meld together. This recipe is not only good when served with the amin course, it is also delicious when placed on top of cream cheese and served with crackers as an appetitizer.
I so wanted to like this! Especially since I love all the ingredients individually. but this ended up just tasting like cranberry sauce with onions in it. Cream cheese makes it better, but only just. Such a waste of good cranberries (and they're nearly impossible to find in Australia!) Not sure if I did something wrong - I followed the recipe quite closely, but maybe based on the amount of good reviews I went awry on the measurements. Either way I won't be making this again!
A friend served this and I was amazed at how fresh and amazing it tasted. As soon as I got home, I was on the hunt to find the recipe and stumbled across this one. Glad I did! Changed up the recipe just a bit by adding a half of red onion and 2 jalapenos instead of one for a bit of a kick. This recipe is so easy to make and a great gift to give out to friends and family.
I have never liked cranberrie sauce... untill I tried this recipe. I buy all the crandberries during the holidays and freeze them so I can enjoy the tasty sauce all year long. I make enough to give to my neighbors, friends and family for Thanksgiving and Christmas. YUMMY!
I made this last minute to take to a party and EVERYONE asked about it. It was amazing
My family loved this, they ask me to make it all the time now. Yummy Yummy
I made this just exactly as it is written. It was perfect with our deep fried turkey! It would also be delicious mixed with cream cheese and served with crackers. Thanks for a great recipe!
Really great! I was skeptical about this recipe, but trusted all of the five-star reviews and made it for my family's Thanksgiving dinner. It was fabulous! Great with chips or as a condiment on leftover turkey sandwiches (mmmmmmm!).
Delicious salsa! I added 4 jalapenos and decreased the sugar to about 1/4 cup and let it sit overnight before serving and it was so yummy! Thank you for posting this recipe!
I thought this was excellent! The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was because it only called for one jalapeno. I couldn't even taste it. The second time I made it, because the first batch got gone so quickly, I put two in. Still couldn't taste it. Next time I'll go for three. I'm wondering what it would taste like with habineros in it. I'll bet it'd be awesome! Great recipe. Thanks for sharing!
Wow, this is the first time I'm giving a review, and I just had to write in about this one! A great twist on traditional cranberry sauce (BORING!) Just make sure you add sugar to taste. I ended up using a scant half-cup.
Super easy! I was asked for this recipe both times I made it! Healthy, fast and simple. I serve with the fat free chips. It is a very festive holiday dish! As good as it is pretty. Thanks for the post!
I'm in love with this recipe!
I love this recipe! A friend gave it to me a few years ago and now I use it as gifts during the Holiday season, attached with the recipes for them to share with others as well! A hit!
I ran into trouble finding cranberries, fresh or frozen, so I substituted mango and it tasted pretty good. I prefer the cranberries, but the mango worked in a pinch.
This was a huge hit with my family and coworkers. Many people asked for the receipe and all got the same response I did when they made it for the holidays. This will be incorporated into our holiday staples. Served it with lime totilla chips, which really enhanced it. I'm going to try it over chicken next.
Delicious and different. A great way to use up cranberries! It tastes amazing with cheese.
I made this with more 3 limes and 1/2 cup sugar. great, sour with a slight burn. it went over great at party. tried it on Brie and cream cheese, it was a waste of brie as the taste overpowered it, cream cheese worked as well. My wife liked it best on corn chips
Almost everyone who's tried this has asked me for the recipe -- even the one who loathes onions! It's delicous and I agree with a couple of other reviews, it does taste better the day or two after you make it (but that's the case with just about any salsa). Thanks for the great recipe!
this is a really easy recipe. Everyone really enjoyed it.
This salsa was great! It is really easy to make. I would be careful of the amount of cilantro, don't over do it. I used a roast green chili to add some heat.
Good flavor... even one jalapeno made it quite spicy! I followed the recipe and made several batches. I ran out of sugar and used Truvia baking sugar instead of real sugar and it was not noticeable. Can't wait to pour this over cream cheese and scoop it up! Thanks for the unique recipe.
Adding 1/3 cup of thawed frozen raspberries really kicks this up to perfect! Try it!
This is a great recipe.. Love all the flavors.. Made it for a work party, everyone loves it! Great with whole wheat pita chips.
Wow! Thank you...this recipe was a HIT at my party. I literally had to promise everyone I would send them the recipe. I did follow the suggestions and cut the sugar to 1/2cup and poured the salsa over cream cheese and served with multigrain chips. I only had an hour for the salsa to chill in the refrigerator vs. over night and it was still incredible!
Outstanding recipe. Only change was to halve the sugar as suggested by others. Letting it sit a day or two helps the favors blend. Unlike regular salsa/pico, this doesn't get too juicy when sitting an extra day.
We made this for Thanksgiving this year and it was a big hit! We served it over creme cheese and it was gone pretty fast!
First off, I will definitely make this again. However I will tweak it next time. I think half the cilantro might help (I'm not a big fan of cilantro though) and adding some orange zest or juice might help. There was something a little off about this. It was good but I think it can be improved. Maybe a bit of agave nectar for sweetness?
Love this...and pretty for the holiday too!
Great flavor! I added in 1-2 tbsp of pomegranate molasses at the end to kick up the acid / add a deeper sweetness. Great complement to Thanksgiving flavors.
I served this over a block of cream cheese with butter cracker this Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. I only added enough sugar to cut the tartness of the cranberries, about 1/2 cup. I also added an extra jalapeno for a little more heat.
I really liked the recipe, and will make it again, but will reduce the amount of sugar. Was a crowd pleaser at a recent dinner party.
I made this today to see if I wanted to make a large batch for our day after Christmas party, and I was very Surprised how good it was. I did cut the sugar to just a little over 1/4 cup. And added 1 Habanero chili pepper instead of Jalepeno. My husband who is very picky loved it. Great over cream cheese!
I substituted green onion with yellow onion and used only one lime and added a shot of tequila.......I may not share it tomorrow.....
I used my leftover thanksgiving cranberry sauce(about 1 cup) so I didn't add any sugar. I also added an extra jalapeño, and a tad more lime juice. This was perfect over shredded turkey!
I didn't love it. I used around 1/2 cup of sugar. I also added a touch of cumin based on another recipe. However, some people at the party couldn't get enough and wanted to recipe. I would give it 3 stars but gave it 4 for them.
I made this for Thanksgiving, but made it with half a cup of sugar and a few dashes of red pepper flakes and it is delish! I will let it sit in the refrigerator overnight, and try it with the cream cheese. Simply wonderful!!
has a good kick to it and the cranberries make it very festive
This is one of my Thanksgiving favorites. I serve it as an appetizer on Thanksgiving day and then on a Hawaiian roll with turkey for left overs on the day after. Yum!
I really like this recipe. I didn't add a whole bunch of cilantro and I used two jalapeños. I will make agsin
Made this as the recipe calls and it was wonderful. I did not have a full bunch of cilantro, but enough to give it a great flavor. Think I might use two jalapenos the next time. My daughter almost cried when I told her she could take the remainder home with her!! Like most others, I put it over a block of cream cheese. Has already been requested for xmas.
This Recipe is fantastic. If you use your salsa with cream cheese, reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup.
I will definately make this salsa again with some "tweaks". I will use less sugar (probably only 1/4 Cup) and two jalepenos. The recipe as directed made the salsa a bit too sweet. I like a little more zip! Very good though and my guests loved it!
This is the BEST recipe! It is always a big hit and requested over and over.
We look forward to making and enjoying this recipe every Christmas! Young and "old" alike, LOVE IT!!
Very versatile how it is, great over chicken or turkey but as a salsa holy cow it's sweet and no spice! I recommend putting in 1.5 limes, juiced of course and a little lime zest. Add an extra jalapeño and CUT THE SUGAR to about 1/3 cup than add more as you go to your desired taste.
