  • 1 bag Cranberries 12 oz. bag, Fresh, Washed, Patted dry
  • 1/4 cup Onions Roughly diced
  • 1-2 Jalapeños Roughly diced
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro leaves Fresh
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice Or lime juice
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Granulated sugar Adjust according to your taste
  • Salt To taste
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 2 packages Cream cheese 8 oz. boxes


  • Add cranberries, onions, jalapeños, cilantro, lemon juice, sugar, salt, ginger powder, garlic powder in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Do not make the mixture smooth. It's supposed to be slightly chunky.
  • Transfer this to serving bowl. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to deepen. 
  • Spoon this mixture over over 2 blocks of cream cheese or you can enjoy it as just plain salsa.


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
