Soft, creamy avocado and tart, slightly sweet cranberries, come together in this very unique salsa, that is both delicious to eat and pretty to look at!

I’m of the mindset that you can add avocado to just about anything and it will instantly becomes 100 times better. I can’t get enough of that green stuff 🙂 ! When I came across this recipe from Martha Stewart, I couldn’t wait to try it and make it my own. This salsa goes great with your favorite corn or pita chip. I also think it would be great on toast or even on a leftover turkey sandwich!

I loved the idea of bringing avocado in on the Thanksgiving celebration- and hope you will too! I mean I think the pilgrims would have approved, don’t you? Test out my recipe for Avocado and Cranberry Salsa below and let me know what you think!

    I made this for Thanksgiving weekend and it was a huge hit! I did leave out the jalapeno as we had some who do not like it too spicy. It was absolutely wonderful.
