Cranberry Salsa Dip with Cream Cheese


1 (12-ounce bag) or 3 cups fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup minced green onions

2 small (approximately 2 tablespoons) jalapeno chile peppers, cored, seeded and minced

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, minced

2 tablespoons finely-grated fresh ginger

2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice

2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese

Cranberries and/or cilantro sprigs for garnish


Rinse, drain, and pick over cranberries, (discarding all that are soft or bruised).

Place them in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped but not mushy.
Place crushed cranberries in a bowl; mix together with green onions, jalapeno peppers, sugar, cilantro leaves, ginger, and lemon juice.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours so flavors develop (salsa will be too sharp and tart to begin with).
On a serving plate, place cream cheese; cover with the dip. Garnish, if desired, and served with crackers.
