Cranberry Apple Salsa

Do you like cranberries, but want something different from the standard relish for your holiday table or to take to a party?  This cranberry sauce definitely has a Southwest kick.

Cranberry Apple Salsa

Makes 8 (1/4 cup) servings.
Per serving: 36 calories, 0 g total fat (0 g saturated fat),
9 g carbohydrate, 0 g protein, 1.5 g dietary fiber, 2 mg sodium.

1 bag (12 oz.) fresh cranberries, or frozen, unsweetened
1/2 medium Fuji apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 strips (1-inch x 1/2-inch) lime zest, coarsely chopped
1 small jalapeno pepper, without seeds, chopped
3 Tbsp. raw sugar
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/3 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves

In food processor, pulse cranberries just until coarsely chopped. Add apple, onion, lime zest, jalapeno, sugar and lime juice. Pulse (quick pulses) until salsa is still slightly chunky, about 15-20 times.

Add cilantro and pulse until it is chopped but not mushy, about 10 times, stopping to scrape down bowl as needed. Season with a bit of salt, just to lift flavors.

Let salsa sit 20 minutes for flavors to marry. Serve same day.
