White Cheddar Cranberry Bites




Cranberry salsa is one of my favorite seasonal treats. Bright, tangy, and exploding with flavor, it’s such a fun twist on the more typical tomato variety.


Paired with sharp white cheddar and a crispy cracker base, the salsa is the shining star in this quick, delicious, no-cook appetizer. Make the salsa ahead and you can have a tray of pretty little appetizers ready to go in minutes.
