Fruity Tomato-Cranberry Salsa

Pat Duran


This recipe was given to me in part by a very dear friend in New Mexico many years ago- I'd say about 48 years ago. I have since tweaked it a bit to get the flavor just the way I like it... I hope you like this recipe and use it for the holidays or for those ball games on TV. This is great served with pork chops, baked ham, grilled chicken, and of course the turkey bird-and your favorite tortilla chips-- try it as a sandwich spread too! Just enjoy!
