Description

Cranberry tang meets kick up your heels salsa ingredients for great flavor combinations in this cranberry salsa dip. Make a day ahead so that the ingredients have time meld. Serve over cream cheese for an amazing tongue-tingling event.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag (12 Oz. Size) Fresh Cranberries
  • ½ cups To 3/4 Cups White Sugar, Depending On Taste Preference
  • 1 bunch Green Onions, Sliced With Some Of The Green Tops
  • 1 whole Jalapeno Pepper, Seeded And Chopped
  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced
  • ¼ cups To 1/2 Cup Chopped Cilantro, To Taste
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 blocks (8 Oz. Size) Cream Cheese, Softened

Preparation

Wash and pick through fresh cranberries. Discard any soft or wrinkled cranberries.

Put cranberries, sugar, green onions, jalapeno, lime juice, cilantro, and salt in a food processor. Pulse until ingredients are a medium coarse consistency.

Put in a bowl, cover and let season for at least 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator. This is a very important step! There is quite a different taste between the initial product and the one that develops over as the ingredients season.

Spread softened cream cheese on a serving plate. (I divided the cream cheese between two plates.) Spread cilantro salsa over the cream cheese. Serve at room temperature.

I have a recipe very simaliar to this, except I add about a 1/2 of a serrano pepper along with the Jalapeno for a differnent dept of heat and no green onions. Also I use splenda instead of sugar (I’m a diabetic) and you really can’t tell the difference. Never thought of the cream cheese idea though that’s a good one, I bet it is good, I’ll give it a try this week.
