Every fall, my family and I pack up the car and travel to our friend’s farm. One of my favorite things is Mrs. Lewis’s cranberry dip, and I look forward to the dip as much as the party itself! I love serving it at my own get-togethers, because it’s easy to make ahead and it’s so fun to hear my friends guess at the unexpected ingredients. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
1 12 oz. bag of dried cranberries
1/4 cup cherry preserves
1/3 c chopped green onion
1 bunch chopped cilantro
1/3 c chopped bell pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper or less
1 small can chopped green chilies (I like to add a few chopped jalapenos for an extra kick)
2 teaspoons garlic salt or fresh chopped garlic
Mix and serve with Fritos scoops or pita chips. It’s also delicious served over a mild goat cheese.
