We're fans of the classics, as we're sure many of you are. But sometimes, it's great to put a modern twist on the classics. That's why we created this Cranberry Salsa. Made with fresh tomatoes, sun-dried cranberries, orange zest, freshly squeezed lime juice, and jalapeños, it offers a vibrant, autumnal twist to traditional salsa. So it makes the perfect holiday appetizer. The combination of sweet, tangy, aromatic, and heat is refreshing. Plus, it's low in calories, so it's a great alternative to high-fat dips like cheese. What's more, cranberries provide antioxidants and immune-boosting vitamin C. So eat to your health!

All you have to do is put your ingredients in a bowl and stir. We made this salsa a medium spice, but you can increase the heat if you prefer. Feel free to serve on top of some cream cheese or Bacon Cheese Dip, along with your favorite tortilla chips like Keto Tortilla Chips or crackers like Keto Crackers.

How long does cranberry salsa last in fridge?

Cranberry salsa will last up to 4 days in the fridge as long as it is stored in an airtight container.

What can I make with cranberry salsa?

You can serve cranberry salsa with cream cheese, tortilla chips or crackers. It's also a great addition topped on chicken or fish.  

Do you cook cranberries for cranberry salsa?

No, you don't. Just use sun-dried cranberries so no need to cook them, making this dish quick and easy. 

Is cranberry salsa good for weight loss?

It sure is! Cranberry salsa is both low in calories and fat, making it a great low-calorie alternative to calorie-laden sauces. Plus, cranberry salsa pairs well with lean proteins like turkey which boost your metabolism, and help you feel full longer.
