Pomegranate Guacamole 

Serves: 4

Total time: 15 minutes


½ C. arils from POM Wonderful Pomegranates,* or ½ C. POM POMS Fresh Arils 

2 ripe avocados, skin and pit removed

1 lime zest and juice

1 sm. red onion, finely chopped

1 lg. jalapeno, deseeded and finely chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

salt, to taste


Prepare fresh pomegranate arils if using POM Wonderful Pomegranates. 

In a medium sized mixing bowl, mash avocado and mix in lime zest and juice. Add red onion, jalapeno and garlic. Season to taste with salt. Finish by stirring in arils. Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips or sliced radishes. 

*To prepare fresh arils (seed sacs), score 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate under water to free the arils. The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl. Reserve ½ cup of the arils from the fruit and set aside. Refrigerate the remaining arils for later use.
