Serving Up {Appetizer}: Pomegranate Salsa

Have you ever eaten anything and just been floored...like, where has this been my entire life and why have I never heard of it/seen it/eaten it?  Right?  There is just so much out there that is sheer deliciousness!  This salsa definitely falls into that category.  Between the avocado and pomegranate, I could eat this as a meal.  Oh wait, I have :)

So outside of the life changing event that this salsa will be...I need to teach you the right way to de-seed your pomegranate which could also be life changing.  There are a lot of methods out there claiming to be the "easiest" but I will tell you right now there is only one way to do it.  Leave it to good old Martha to figure it out - please click here and watch the tutorial.  Once you know the secret, you will begin buying pomegranates like bananas and enjoying them all winter long like I have started to do.  Love it!  Love pomegranates!  Love this salsa!  Love you!

One Year Ago:  Peanut Butter Fritos

(recipe from Georgia G.)
printable version

1 small pomegranate (if the pomegranate is bigger, double the avocado and tomato)
1 tomato, chopped
2 Tbs. onion, finely chopped
1 avocado, chopped
1/2 tsp. coriander
1/2 tsp. Accent (optional)
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. salt

Remove the seeds from the pomegranate and place in a medium bowl.  Add chopped tomato, chopped onion, coriander, accent, cayenne pepper and salt.  Stir gently until all are combined.  Add avocado last* and gently fold into the other ingredients.  Chill until ready to serve.  Serve with Frito Scoops.

* if you make the salsa in advance, then omit the avocado until you are ready to actually serve it so that it does not brown
