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)
FRESH CRANBERRY SALSA WITH CREAM CHEESE DIP
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.
