Fresh Ginger Cranberry Salsa
Yield: 4 1/2 pints


  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
  • 1/4 cup crystallized ginger


This simple salsa comes together in a flash. It's not cooked, so the fresh, snappy flavor of the cranberries shines through. Just toss all the ingredients into a blender or food processor until finely chopped and you're set. Serve it with cheese or as a condiment for the roast turkey. It will keep up to two weeks in the refrigerator.

Fresh Carrot and Parsley Salad
Yield: 4 to 6 servings


  • 7 to 8 organic carrots, grated (about 3-1/2 cups)
  • 1 large bunch parsley, finely chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries, Craisins
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 tablespoons smashed fennel seeds


  1. In a medium bowl, toss together the carrots, parsley and Craisins.
  2. Smash and chop the garlic and put into a small bowl.
  3. Whisk in the lime juice, oil, salt and fennel.
  4. Toss the dressing with the carrots.
  5. Allow the salad to sit a little while before serving so that the flavors marry, or make it a day ahead and store, covered, in the refrigerator.
