Apples and cranberries give this salsa a holiday flavor—while garlic and jalapenos give it just the kick salsa needs. You can serve it up as a dip with chips, as you would a regular salsa, or spoon it up as a complement to meat dishes. Sometimes, I substitute half the sugar with splenda to lessen the calories. Works and tastes great! —Pam Leni, Rockford, Illinois
