cranberry salsa: the best holiday appetizer ever

Because I am big on tradition and short on time I am re-posting my favorite holiday appetizer recipe of all time: Cranberry Salsa.

My friend Celine brought it to a book club holiday party a few years ago and I have been madly in love with this dish ever since. If I could marry it, I would. The recipe below calls for fat cream cheese because it was originally used by the UCSD Medical Center to promote heart-health, but I suggest going for the gusto with full-fat cream cheese (tis the season, right?). Also, I’ve tried it on several types of crackers and Wheat Thins are still my favorite.

Without further ado, here is the recipe for the world’s best holiday appetizer, ever:
