Cranberry Salsa




Hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving!!! I was away in Boston and New York visiting friends and family, and had a fantastic Thanksgiving. I was thankful to have such wonderful company! I missed you all and wasn't able to visit your wonderful blogs. But, here I come with an awesome salsa that I made with my friend in Boston. Our Thanksgiving lunch included cranberry salsa, vegetable dum biriyani, sweet potato fries, butternut squash with rosemary, and apple pie. It was SO DELICIOUS!!!
Cranberries are abundant around this time and especially in the New England area. They are tart and sour and are a kind of wild berries. They are mainly used as a sauce or a relish for Thanksgiving feasts. Try this spicy salsa and you would wanna stock up cranberries forever!!! :)

Get ready

  • 2 cups fresh cranberries (Cut them in halves or quarters) 
  • 1 1/3 cups chopped red onions
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons minced green chiles
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 5-6 tbsp. orange juice
  • Salt to taste
Go!!!

  • In a bowl, mix the cranberries, chili, onion, cilantro well. Add salt and sugar according to your taste.
  • Add lime juice and orange juice; toss well.  The lime juice and orange juice can be adjusted according to your taste.
Serve as a side and enjoy!!!
Pretty easy, huh?
Again, happy Thanksgiving and ENJOY!!!
