Have you ever heard the name of a dish and you just knew that it would be wonderful? That’s how I feel about this little creation. Cranberry Salsa dip. The name, alone, makes me all twitterpated.
Of course I picked up this recipe from someone at work, Sarah. That woman is a great recipe resource. Serve this with tortilla chips, crackers, veggies, or a spoon. I mean, really, when you come right down to it, chips or crackers only serve as a platform for the dip anyway, right? So just cut to the chase, save a few calories and offer some disposable spoons to your guests. They can shovel in the dip to their heart’s content.
This recipe makes enough to cover 2 (8 ounce) blocks of cream cheese, which initially seems like a lot. However, I was surprised at how fast just half of this recipe disappeared. It is sort of addicting once you start eating it.
Important Note–this dip needs at least 4 hours for the flavors to blend. It is bitter when it is first made, but tastes completely different after it has had a chance to sit for a while. It keeps well for several days, so it is a great addition to your “plan ahead” holiday party menu.
