Fast and Easy Fresh Cranberry Salsa

Thanksgiving Side: Fresh Cranberry Salsa

We're not one to veer too far away from turkey day traditions, but one Thanksgiving trend we're completely on board with this year is the concept of a lighter cranberry sauce.

If the idea of jelly from a can or a heavy, thick cranberry sauce doesn't float your boat this year — or if you just want to bring a new cranberry perspective to the table! — consider opting for cranberry salsa instead. All you need are 15 minutes, fresh cranberries, lime, jalapeño, and sugar, and you've got a Thanksgiving side that everyone'll be asking about. With its clean, tart flavors and addictive heat, the salsa cuts right through mashed potatoes, bacon-studded brussels sprouts, gravy, and all the other heavy, rich foods on the table.
