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!

    If I were judging this contest.. even with my dislike of cranberries (usually) you would win the grand prize.

    Not only for the combination of flavors which has me salivating – but for presentation. I absolutely LURVE the cranberry sauce under the pretty white maple buttercream. *swoon*

    Hi!

    I’m Veronica, I’m trying this recipe but how much Baking soda is it?
    You put in the directions to mix it, but in the ingredients is missing.
    Thank you!
    Later on I’ll let you know how they baked!

    Regards!

    Veronica

    Veronica – It’s a typo in the instructions. It should say Baking Powder. I have corrected the post.
