Cranberry Pear Relish

Somehow my small group’s Thanksgiving feast happened to fall on a crazy-busy workday this year, leaving me pretty much zero time for any prep on my dinner contribution.

But not to fear!

Dum dah dum…

Behold, my 3-minute cranberry-pear relish to the rescue!

I’m not kidding.  It took me more time to pull out the food processor than to actually make this one.  Just zest an orange, toss everything else into the food processor, and voila!  A colorful, delicious, and creative twist on cranberry relish is ready in minutes.  And, it’s also perfect for leftovers on turkey sandwiches!  Definitely a yummy and speedy recipe to bookmark.

    Yum! That looks great. But I’m having a mental block this morning. Besides turkey sandwiches, what would this accompany? Regardless, I might go pick up a pear and an orange (already have the cranberries and pecans!) and experiment. :)

    Yum! This sounds like a perfect alternative to cranberry sauce. I love the addition of pecans!
