My sister, Gwen, first made this Cranberry Salsa a few years back for Thanksgiving. It went over so well, that she now makes it pretty much every time the family gets together. Here’s the recipe…


1 bag rinsed, chopped, fresh cranberries
12 red cherry tomatoes
½ cup sugar (you can add more sugar if the salsa is too tart)
6 tablespoons minced cilantro
3 tablespoons chopped red onion
¾ teaspoon cumin
Juice from 1 lime
2 jalapeno chilis, stemmed, seeded, minced

Use a food processor; mix in medium bowl; serve with tortilla chips.

Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe Gwen!

    I made this recipe for Thanksgiving this year and found it was too tart. So I added a little extra sugar and it turned out terrific!

    I was searching for recipes for baked brie or camembert and came across this salsa. Do you think this would work with the baked cheese?

  5. Lisa Says:

    No – it has a tart taste to it that probably wouldn’t go well with brie or camembert.

    Here’s a great recipe for baked brie with cranberries.
