cranberry salsa recipe

Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 1 hour and 5 minutes
Makes about 2 ½ cups


1 (12 oz.) bag fresh cranberries
½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
½ cup green onions, roughly chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
Zest and juice of 1 lime
½ cup granulated sugar




1. Place all ingredients into a large food processor and pulse until well mixed. Be careful not to overmix, you want a slightly chunky consistency.
