1-2pomegranates seeded* or about 1 1/2-2 cupssee note about purchasing pre-seeded pomegranates
2 tomatoes, dicedor about 1 1/2 cups
1bunch green onions, or red onion chopped 1/2 cup total
salt and pepper to taste
1/2teaspoonred pepper flakesor to taste
Squeeze the lime over the avocado to keep it from browning into a medium size bowl.
Add rest of ingredients to the bowl.
Fold together gently. Let sit at room temperature before serving.
Best served with large Fritos or tortilla chips.
It is very important to FOLD the ingredients together. Do not mix or stir, or the avocados will not hold their shape and the pomegranates will discolor the rest of ingredients.
Pomegranates may be purchased pre-seeded at Costco in a two pack. Each container holds about 1 1/2 cups of pomegranate seeds. I use one package, or one half of the Costco container (227g for this recipe).
This recipe serves about 4-6 if only one appetizer is served, or about 12 if served with other appetizers or on a buffet.
