Cranberry and Avocado Salsa

Avocado is one of my favorites foods. I think I’d eat it on just about anything. Can you believe that as of a couple years ago I had never had avocado. Never had quacamole or anything. Believe me, I’m making up for lost time now!

This salsa comes together in just a few minutes, tastes amazing, and has pretty festive holiday colors. What more could you ask for? I definitely recommend making it at some point soon! It was a HUGE hit at our holiday party.

The hardest thing about this recipe was just cutting the cranberries in half. Seriously! Those little round berries just don’t want to sit still. I didn’t want to slice each one individually, and I don’t have one of those chopper thingies, so I got a little creative. I used the ring from my springform pan to contain the berries. Then I used my bench scraper to chop them. It worked pretty well for me!

    Pumpkin is the best! It always says fall to me:) I ended up making my own puree this year and I really think it tasted better.

    I love this recipe also. I think, I should stop looking at your blog. You will keep me baking for weeks. I am not really complaining.
