Pomegranate and Pear Salsa

I used several pomegranates in my holiday decorating this year, but now that the holidays are over it's time to eat them!!!

This recipe got rave reviews from all who tried it!!! So I'm passing it along to you!!!



2 pomegranates or 1 3/4 cups of pomegranate seeds
1/4 cup 100% pomegranate juice (I bought POM at Walmart.)
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro (Got that at Walmart, also.)
1 medium Bartlett pear, cored and diced
1 Tbsp. sugar


Cut the ends off the pomegranate like you would an onion. Score each pomegranate and place in a large bowl of water. Break pomegranates open underneath water to free seeds. Pull and break seeds from fruit membrane and seed will float to the bottom. Strain away water and place seeds in a medium mixing bowl.

Add pomegranate juice and lime juice to seeds; toss to evenly coat. Add minced red onion, cilantro, and diced pear; stir to combine. Sprinkle sugar over seed mixture and stir to combine. Serve with baked tortilla chips. Can also be used as a garnish for fish or chicken.

I didn't get any photos BECAUSE IT DIDN'T LAST THAT LONG!!!! I'm tellin' ya...it's that good!!!
