This cranberry orange relish is perfectly sweet and tart, requires no cooking, and is ready in less than 5 minutes. Perfect for Thanksgiving dinner!
This cranberry orange relish has been a staple in my family at Thanksgiving and Christmas for as long as I can remember. The original version contains refined white sugar, but here I’ve made it paleo-friendly!
It’s bright and citrusy, and you can adjust the sweetness to your liking. I like mine a bit tart. It’s best after sitting in the fridge for a day, after the flavors have had time to blend. It’ll keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks thanks to the citric acid, but you can also freeze for later!
I love simple, flavorful things like this to liven up a meal. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! Try it on a paleo biscuit for breakfast, a salad for lunch, or with a pork chop for dinner. We love to make Thanksgiving leftover salads, and this relish can transform a boring salad topped with turkey into something magical.
Your taste buds will thank you!
