Tangy and sweet with a bit of a bite. Quick and easy, and always requested at gatherings.

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More
