In a medium bowl, combine the chopped cranberries, green onion, cilantro, jalapeno, sugar, cumin, lemon juice and salt. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

I tried this fabulous dip at Thanksgiving and it shot straight to the top of my list of favorite holiday appetizers. I'll be making it again for Christmas, and everyone else who tried says they will too! A food processor works well for chopping the cranberries, and even the green onion and jalapeno. Not only does this dip taste great, it looks beautiful and very festive. It's sure to be a hit at all of your holiday gatherings!
