This is one of my favorite appetizers to serve during the holiday season!!! The original recipe includes a cream cheese and goat cheese spread that you pour this over. It is fantastic with tortilla chips and crackers! I can no longer tolerate dairy so plain salsa is it for me...delicious on it's own as well!
I might actually use this on my turkey this year instead of gravy for Thanksgiving dinner. It's almost like a cranberry relish and could be used over any meat or fish! I made the salsa sugar free by using Swerve instead of white sugar. Cranberries are very low in sugar so they are perfect for those trying to stay as low carb as possible during the holidays.
- 3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (thawed)
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
- ½ cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 bunch green onions, chopped (about 4-5)
- 1/3-1/2 cup sugar (I used Swerve for no sugar option)
- Juice of 2 limes
- Place all of the ingredients in a food processor. Blend until desired consistency
- Refrigerate for an hour or overnight
- Serve with chips or crackers as salsa or pour over cheese ball (directions in the notes below)
8oz Cream Cheese, softened (I prefer whipped so it spreads easier on crackers)
4oz butter, softened
2 oz goat cheese
Mix together in a food processor until smooth. Spoon into a bowl that is wrapped with plastic. Wrap and chill until set.
If you want to try Swerve or need to order more, use coupon code KATE10 for a 10% discount. Swerve is my favorite sugar replacement. It is the only sugar alcohol that will not cause tummy troubles and it does not raise blood glucose levels.
