"I served this as an appetizer at Thanksgiving and at my bible study group. It was a total hit! I was a little afraid that it was too hot when I sampled it right after I made it, but after it was in the fridge overnight, the flavors melded so well. I made it exactly as the recipe called for, except that I put the whites of the onions in the food processor (I used my blender), but reserved the green tops to mix in after it was blended; to add to the color and texture. Great recipe! Don't be afraid to try it!"

"Wow! What an explosion of different flavors in your mouth. I forgot to add the grated lime peel, but it was still exceptional. I used an entire bunch of cilantro (before it wilted) and just love it. I wonder if this will freeze nicely. I'd like to make a bunch while fresh cranberries are still available."

"La Salsa mexican restaurants in Calif make something similar for the holidays...oh so good!!! I make something like your recipe...only I use canned cranberry sauce"

"This is absolutely delicious! I have a blender and found it hard to keep the salsa chunkiness, so I may hand chop at least half the cranberries next time and add in. I make homemade tortilla chips by cutting 96% fat free tortillas into wedges and baking in a 350' oven for 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown. I will be looking for more opportunities to serve this over the holidays!"
