Cranberry Salsa

I made this salsa for a party we are going to tomorrow, but I can not stop eating it.  My exchange student Rina and I have eaten almost the whole batch. I need to go make  another for tomorrow.  Yes it is that good. I told my husband I wouldn't mind this replacing my regular salsa and using it for everything.  He rolled his eyes he doesn't get it,  but it is really  I would.  Try it!

The other day I was at a friends house for lunch while our kids played and she pulled out this cranberry salsa.  She had seen it on the today show last year. She asked if I  had had it before and I had not. I had not even heard of it.  We just ate it with chips and salsa, but it would be divine with a soft cheese on top of crackers  or atop of grilled fish or poultry.
 I think this would be killer with turkey this thanksgiving, different but great!!!    I will also serve it as an appetizer with cream cheese and crackers. This week.
