      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 peppers, cored, seeded and minced
      1/2 cup sugar
      1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, minced
      2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
      2 tablespoons fresh 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 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.

      Yeh, I saw this recipe & thought it would be a neat way to use a “THanksgiving Staple” in a different way. 🙂
