  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 minced jalapeno
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 2 ripe avocados, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 minced jalapeno (seeds removed for less heat, if desired), and 1/4 cup chopped red onion.

  2. Add 2 ripe avocados, cut into 1/4-inch pieces, 3/4 cup halved cranberries, drained well on paper towels, and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro. Season with coarse salt and ground pepper; toss gently to combine. Serve with Pita Crisps or tortilla chips, as desired.

Cook's Notes

To make pita crisps: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Split 2 pitas in half horizontally. Brush both sides with 3 tablespoons olive oil; season with coarse salt and ground pepper. Cut into triangles; spread on a baking sheet. Bake, turning once, until crisp, 10 minutes.

    ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. Definitely a crowd favorite. I recommend blanching the cranberries before adding them to the salsa, fresh cranberries are a little crispy it's nice to soften them up.

    I make this every year for my Christmas Party - I use green avocado tortilla chips to be festive - I have to triple the recipe because it's SO popular. Everyone raves!
