Cranberry-Orange Salsa

My wonderful friend Peggy is such a rockstar!!

A True Warrior!!

I look up to her in so many ways.   I try really hard just to keep up with her at the gym and it is just as hard to keep up with her in the kitchen as anything she cooks or bakes tastes heavenly.  She  gave me this great recipe for salsa.  Her family has it every year for Thanksgiving and she says it is great on just about anything.  We tried it on some pork chops and also as a side for dipping veggies.  I even got caught taking some spoonfuls and eating it straight! YUM!!

Gather Up:

  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 tbsp grated orange peel
  • 1 seedless orange, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp ginger root
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and inner membrane removed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp orange juice

Chop cranberries in food processor – process about 30 seconds max (keep coarse).  Add orange peel, orange, ginger root, parsley, cilatnro, and jalapeño and pulse until well blended.

Add orange juice and honey.  Process 5 more seconds.  Like I said, heavenly!! Thanks for sharing Peggy!!

  3. As Karen mentioned in the post – try this with pork chops. Spoon about 1/2 cup over three good-sized pork chops in a covered baking dish (like corning ware). Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, until the center of the chops are just barely pink. Enjoy!

  4. I made this last night! Amazing. I couldn’t stop putting my spoon in it and taking bites!
