Cranberry Relish That Beats the Can

Why a hallmark holiday side is a boring can of lumpy, gelatinous, preservative-full and too-sweet cranberry sauce is beyond me. Sure, that canned goo is nostalgic and sweet, but it’s time to kick the can and make an easy, fresh, flavorful and healthy cranberry relish that dazzles.

Cranberries are amazing when they’re not reduced to jello. They’re bright, tart, sweet and an easy way to amp up your holiday table. So, grab a bag of fresh cranberries from the produce aisle, then chop and toast your way to this bright, no-cook side dish in minutes.
