Sure, it sometimes gets the reputation for being an afterthought, but cranberry sauce, when prepared well, can be the perfect punch of brightness and sweet for your plate.

Plus, there’s always some leftover — meaning next-day sandwiches are a MUST.

Spicy-Sweet Harissa Cranberry Sauce

for cranberry sauce

1 12-ounce bag cranberries
1/2 cup orange juice

Cava Traditional Hummus

In a medium saucepan, bring all ingredients to a rapid simmer over medium heat. Cook until berries burst and mixture becomes syrupy, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve at room temperature.

For leftovers sandwiches, prepare bacon, and slice and toast bread. Spread a few hearty spoonfuls of cranberry sauce on a slice of toasted bread. Top with a few torn pieces of turkey, a few slices of bacon, and a few leaves of radicchio. Spread other slice of bread with a few tablespoons of hummus. Stack the whole thing together and enjoy!
