recipe {cranberry orange salsa}

this is one of my favorite "holiday" recipes.  you can't make it until you can get your hands of fresh cranberries.  it is great to eat as a salsa w/ tortilla chips or pretzels or vegetable sticks, on your turkey at thanksgiving {a favorite at my house} and also as a salad dressing.  AND it's good for you!  i originally got the recipe from my boss in dallas...she had found it on, but i have since learned that there are all kinds of recipes like it out there.  i didn't have any dried apricots on hand monday night, so instead i added some strawberries and it worked great.  i will say that if you have a food processor, it makes it SUPER easy!  here's the recipe....

3 cups cranberries, chopped

1/2 cup honey

2 oranges, peeled, pithed and chopped

1 medium red onion, peeled and grated {i didn't have red on hand so i used a yellow one...also, if you are using a food processor, just chunk it up and throw it in...not grating needed.}

1/2 cup chopped dried apricot

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped (see note)

2 tablespoons lime juice

Combine cranberries and honey in a large bowl. Fold in oranges, onion, dried apricots, cilantro, jalapeño and lime juice.

Chill for 2 hours.

Makes 12 servings.
