Cranberry Salsa

by Laura

Here is a fun and festive appetizer, Cranberry Salsa.  Yep that’s right, salsa made from fresh cranberries.  I got this recipe from a fellow member of Pinching Your Pennies, a great forum website.  So I have to saw I was a little scared of the Serrano pepper in the recipe.  I do not do really spicy things, so I just used more green pepper.  I do think that I should of at least used jalapenos in place of the Serrano.  The salsa could have used the extra spice to balance out the sweetness.  So if you are scared of the Serrano, go for jalapenos.  It still was yummy even though I just used green pepper.  It was a refreshing change and a different way to use fresh cranberries.
