If you’re looking for the most festive holiday party snack ever, this cranberry salsa recipe is it. The combination of cranberries, jalapeño and the perfect amount of sugar makes this dip a favorite of mine. Besides being gorgeous, it’s exceptionally delicious. And, your guests will love it because it’s totally different than the usual fare that seems to appear at nearly every single holiday party you attend. Seriously, it will have everyone talking! What’s not to love?
The cranberry salsa dip is served with tortilla chips or crackers, lending just the perfect amount of salty crunch to each bite. I personally have been pairing it with Trader Joe’s restaurant style tortilla chips — there’s the smallest hint of lime that makes the whole thing even more spectacular.
I love everything about serving this dish, but most of all, I love how unique it is. You can even make this a few days ahead and store it in your refrigerator until your guests arrive.
Whip up this simple-but-beautiful recipe and bring the prettiest dish to the party!
