Cranberry Salsa Dip is an appetizer recipe that I recently tried, and it has very quickly become a family favorite!  I’ve never tried anything like it before, but the cranberry/spices/cream cheese combination makes for an absolutely delicious dip! Besides, it’s super easy and only takes a handful of ingredients, which is always a plus for any busy mom!

Cranberry Salsa Dip

  • 12 oz. bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  1. Heat all ingredients except for cream cheese in saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Keep stirring as the cranberries pop and continue stirring until the cranberries are softened and the mixture has a salsa consistency (about 10 minutes).
  3. Cool the mixture and then pour over cream cheese.
  4. Serve with chips or crackers.  Enjoy!
(If you want to store this recipe, make sure to store the cranberry mixture separate from the cream cheese.  The cranberry salsa refrigerates well and will last for several days, but not when combined with the cream cheese – learned this the hard way!) To take this a step further…did you know that cranberries freeze well in general? You can freeze fresh cranberries for 6-12 months! Just put them into airtight containers or freezer bags whenever you find a good price for them, and it will make your holiday meal prepping that much easier!
