I WANT you to make this salsa for your next party. It. Is. Amazing. SERIOUSLY! And do it before all the FRESH cranberries and pomegranates are gone! It is not only amazing in taste, but BEAUTIFUL to look at as well. And everyone wants to eat pretty food, right?
Cranberry Pomegranate Salsa
1 cup fresh cranberries, finely chopped (I just chop it in my blender)
1 cup pomegranate seeds
2 green onions, chopped
3 or 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar
Dash of ground ginger
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate a few hours before serving. Give it a good stir and serve over a block of cream cheese with Wheat Thins, Chicken in a Biscuit crackers, or some yummy salty tortilla chips. The saltier the better!
TIP: The salsa is great on tortilla chips without the cream cheese as well. If you don't have cilantro, you can use parsley in a pinch, and I think lime juice would be phenomenal in place of the lemon juice. You decide!
