Avocado & Pomegranate Salsa

I love a dish that transforms a familiar taste into something amazing….like this sweet and savory salsa.  It’s like guacamole kicked up a few notches. Which is tough, since  guac is quite perfect on it’s own.  But let me tell you, I could have eaten the entire bowl of this delicious salsa.


For one, it’s gorgeous! It was a beautiful addition to my holiday meal. For two, the taste is crazy good. It’s sweet meets savory meets Mexico.  Love it. For three – you knew this was coming – it’s healthy.  Avocados and antioxidant-rich pomegranates are two of the most healthy foods you can eat…in my opinion.

Tortilla chips

I scooped it up with some homemade tortilla chips.


We were basically licking the bowl.  I think you will, too. Enjoy!

    Sure thing! Just cut up corn tortillas into triangles, place onto a baking sheet (spray it with cooking spray, and don’t let them overlap). Then give them another quick spray, season with salt and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
