Ingredients

  • 1 c unsweetened cranberries, quartered (frozen)
  • 2 c pears, cored and finely chopped
  • 1 t fresh grated ginger
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded, finely chopped (keep the seeds for a hotter salsa)
  • 1 T orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 t orange zest

Instructions

  • Stir all ingredients together and let macerate until ready to serve.
  • (This salsa is simple to put together once the ingredients are chopped. You could consider lightly pulsing the cranberries in a food processor for additional time savings.)
  • Enjoy this tasty autumn side dish!

Notes


This is a level 1 recipe (may support fat loss). Using pears to sweeten the cranberries instead of corn syrup brings the calories down and the fiber up! Even though I am listing this as a snack, I recommend using this salsa to liven up the protein in your meals.
One serving suggestion is to put it over pork loin, with some snap peas and whole grains on the side. This makes for a light and delicious dinner that will keep you satisfied. The possibilities for this salsa are endless!
