Cranberry, Orange and Apricot Salsa
This cranberry sauce-salsa hybrid is greater than the sum of its parts. Not only can it accompany a Southwestern-style roast turkey dinner, but it can also be a salsa for chicken fajitas, a chutney-like side dish for roast pork, or a relish to stir into white rice for a side dish.
3 cups fresh cranberries, chopped
1/2 cup honey
2 oranges, peeled, pithed and chopped
1 medium red onion, peeled and grated
1/2 cup chopped dried apricot
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped (see note)
2 tablespoons lime juice
- Combine cranberries and honey in a large bowl. Fold in oranges, onion, dried apricots, cilantro, jalapeño and lime juice.
- Chill for 2 hours.
