Great Taste for a Genuine New Mexican

This was one great way to serve a new and different version of a cranberry dish at a party!

I make cranberry salsa, using fresh cranberries, orange juice, onion, fresh jalapeños, more cilantro than this recipe, and I do not cook it. I omit the water, instead use the juice from the orange. It is very good, and I always share the recipe.

A Keeper!

Easy and delicious. A nice change from tomato-based salsa. Excellent served warm with taco scoops!

My No. 1 salsa...
