Sheri's Pomegranate Avocado Salsa

Author abountifulkitchen


  • 2 avocados, diced
  • juice of 1 lime, seeds removed
  • 1-2 pomegranates seeded* or about 1 1/2-2 cups see note about purchasing pre-seeded pomegranates
  • 2 tomatoes, diced or about 1 1/2 cups
  • 1 bunch green onions, or red onion chopped 1/2 cup total
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes or to taste
  • chopped cilantro optional


  1. Squeeze the lime over the avocado to keep it from browning into a medium size bowl.

  2. Add rest of ingredients to the bowl.

  3. Fold together gently. Let sit at room temperature before serving.

  4. Best served with large Fritos or tortilla chips.

Recipe Notes

  • 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.
