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!

    This absolutely falls under the this-is-so-easy-and-so-much-better-why-would-I-ever-go-back-to-canned-version territory! I recently made turkey burgers with cranberry sauce dressing and used the canned kind – never again!

    Wow, this sounds so easy and delicious! I’m cooking for the first time this year and can’t wait to make everything from scratch, which usually doesn’t happen when others in my family cook… 🙂

    I’m jealous, I want this. I have to eat the stuff from a can because I’m allergic to cranberries and the stuff in a can is far away enough from real that I can get away with it. My grandma used to make cranberry relish which was amazing, but also broke me out into the most amazing hives.

    I have never understood those that buy canned cranberries when they are so simple to make. Tastes way better than any can.
    Thanks for your nice and simple cranberry sauce recipe.
