Fresh Cranberry Salsa with Cream Cheese Dip

I am in love with cream cheese.  Sweet.  Savory.  Doesn't matter.  I found this yummy recipe from Our Best Bites that involves cream cheese and had to try it.  Now you've got to try it.  (Terry)

12 oz bag fresh cranberries, washed
2 jalapenos, minced (adjust according to taste)
1/2 cup sliced green onions, roughly chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, roughly chopped
1/2 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup sugar, more to taste if desired
2 8oz packages cream cheese, at room temperature

Place cranberries, jalapenos, green onions and cilantro in a food processor and process until fine. Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in lime juice, salt, and sugar. Chill in fridge for about 2 hours or more. To serve, spread cream cheese evenly in a pie plate or other shallow serving dish. Spread salsa on top and serve with crackers.
NOTE:  Can divide salsa in half and use only one package of cream cheese, saving the rest for another time.
