Cranberry Salsa

Default Image

By Joanna Pruess. This uncooked cranberry salsa is diametrically opposed to those conventional sweet cranberry sauces that frequently come in cans. Intense and fresh tasting, it is a contemporary-style condiment for turkey or grilled chicken, turkey tacos, or even as a topping for cream cheese spread on crackers.
