Ingredients

1/2 cup arils from POM Wonderful Pomegranates or 1/2 cup POM POMS Fresh Arils
2 ripe avocados, skin and pit removed
zest and juice of 1 lime
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 large jalapeño chili, deseeded and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
kosher salt to taste
tortilla chips or pita chips

Preparation

1. Prepare fresh pomegranate arils, if necessary.* 2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mash the avocado and mix in the lime zest and juice, red onion, jalapeño and garlic. Season to taste with salt. 3. Stir in the arils. 4. Serve with tortilla or pita chips.

*To prepare fresh arils, score 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate under water to free the arils (seed sacs). 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 1/2 cup of the arils from fruit and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.)
