Delicious, seasonal cranberry salsa, with cranberries, apple, scallions, ginger, chili, cilantro, and lime.
Most of the ingredients are roughly chopped because they will be going into a food processor. If you don't have a food processor, grate the ginger and finely chop or mince the cranberries, apple, chile, green onions, and cilantro.
- 1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1/2 an apple, peeled, cored, roughly chopped
- 1/2 jalapeño (or serrano) chile, seeds removed, roughly chopped (less or more to taste, depending on how hot the chile is and how hot you would like your salsa to be)
- 2 green onions (scallions), chopped, including light green parts (about 1/4 cup)
- 4 Tbsp sugar
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 Tbsp peeled chopped ginger
- 1 Tbsp lime or lemon juice
- Dash of salt
1 Place the cranberries, apple, chile, green onions, sugar, cilantro, ginger, lime juice and salt (all of the ingredients) in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times until everything is finely chopped and well blended.
2 Let the salsa sit for at least 15 minutes for the sugar in the salsa to soften the chopped cranberries. Store chilled in an airtight container until ready to serve. Serve with chips or as a side to pork, chicken, turkey, or steak. You can also place a dollop over a cracker that has been spread with cream cheese for an appetizer.
