Pomegranate Salsa

Pomegranate seeds are the anti-oxidants of the gods.. or so they say. Who are they??? I have no clue, but they say it!


My friend Rachel Chafee made this lovely dish for a recent holiday party and I’d like to share her genius with all of you. More of Rachel’s recipes can be found on her blog- Life without bread and butter.  Rachel suffers from many food in-tolerances including-but not limited to gluten, dairy, and soy. Her story is worth reading if you find yourself struggling with gastrointestinal troubles.

At any rate-here’s the recipe:

1/2 pomegranate seeded (see video below for a great tutorial on the cleanest easiest way to do this)

1 cucumber (chopped)

1/4 red onion (chopped)

1-2 limes (juiced)

Cilantro (chopped-add to your taste)

Jalapeno (chopped-add to your to taste)

1 clove garlic (chopped)


Add all ingredients and mix in a bowl and serve with tortilla chips.

My favorite are the “Way Better” simply so sweet chili.

You will yield the best results if you refrigerate and wait one to two days before serving-then all of the flavors combine and it tastes soooo much better!

Try adding pear, apples, avocado, or watermelon-all tasty combinations.

If you are strict paleo this is a perfect salad dressing-or side salad complement to a nice white fish or poultry dish.
