Cranberry Salsa

What you need: 

4 green onions
1 small white onion
2 jalapenos
6 serrano peppers
2 (14 ounce) cans whole cranberry sauce
2 limes, juiced
2 (8 ounce) containers vegan cream cheese

What you do: 

1. In food processor, chop up onions and peppers. Move this mixture to a large bowl.
2. Add the cranberry sauce and stir it all up. Once everything is combined really well, squeeze the limes over it and stir again.
3. Refrigerate this for at least 1 hour before serving. It's much tastier cold.
4. Serve with vegan cream cheese and vegan crackers.
I like to spread the cream cheese onto my cracker then top it with salsa. Some people like to dump the salsa over the cream cheese on the plate.

DELICIOUS! Best recipe I've tried from vegweb!
Somehow I didn't get serrano peppers when shopping so I subbed with half of a 7oz. can of chipotles in adobo. This gave it a very smokey taste (which I loved) vs. what I'm sure is a more crisp and fresh taste with the serranos.
Make no mistake this is spicy!! To make it less spicy (carefully) de-seed the peppers before chopping.
I halfed the recipe and in my opinion still had enough for a party of people (4 cups, at least... there's more that's not pictured!)
I used my vitamix to chop the onion and peppers, if you do, use a VERY low speed like 1 or it goes to mush (still good though!)
Delicious and very modern Thanksgiving or even non-Thanksgiving recipe.
I like it with Wheat Thins :)
BTW... If you can't get your hands on cranberry sauce... (europe:)) you may be able to try this recipe with a whole fruit raspberry jam or preserves.


I just made this (half-batch) for the 3rd time in a month, and I'm still stunned by it-- it's so good, so pretty, and so easy.  Thank you thank you thank you, MegMarie!


This is buckle-your-knees, knock-you-naked delicious!

No kidding, I am making this for ALL my holiday gatherings this year.  And maybe just for me, in between.

I made a half recipe and it made probably 3 cups.  It's unsalty, ungarlicky, spicy without being too much, sweet, and tart.  Perfect.  Thank you-- this is an absolute favorite now.
