  • 1 jalapeno, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 white onion coarsely chopped

My mom made this as an appetizer on Thanksgiving.. All of these Thanksgiving recipes coming out of the woodwork! They aren’t just Thanksgiving specific, ya know! I am not a huge fan of cranberries, I usually just eat them dried or in salads. I never eat that gelled cranberry sauce that looks like the shape of a can, nor have I tried it! Anyways, this salsa was a little bit sweet mixed with a little bit spicy, perfect! Make it!


Place the cranberry sauce, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, jalapeno pepper, onion, red pepper, green pepper, tomatoes, and salt, and pepper, to taste in a food processor and pulse until blended, but still chunky.
