pomegranate salsa

pom-1

Pomegranates are one of my top favorite winter fruits. The arils are packed with flavor as well as flavonoids, a type of antioxidant that counteracts some types of cancer radials. I’ve been sprinkling them on different types of dishes, and found that they go well with avocado. Here’s a quick little recipe for a simple pomegranate salsa, an easy salsa or side with chips/crackers for the holidays!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, chopped & seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • juice of 1 lime
  • dash of salt & pepper

Directions: To remove arils from pomegranate,  I score the fruit into 4 sections, submerge each section under water, and gently pick out the arils. Once the avocado, onion, jalapeño, and cilantro are prepped, toss them along with the pomegranate arils into a bowl. Squeeze in lime juice, add salt & pepper, and give another toss. Add more jalapeño, lime, salt and/or pepper to taste.
