Servings and Ingredients

Serves 10
2 pomegranates or 1 3/4 c. pomegranate seeds
¼ c. 100% pomegranate juice
Juice of 1 lime
¼ c. minced red onion
¼ c. freshly chopped cilantro
1 medium Bartlett pear, cored and diced
½ tbsp. honey


  1. If using whole pomegranates, cut off crown, score each pomegranate and place in a large bowl of water. Break pomegranates open underneath water to free seeds. Scoop seeds away from fruit membrane. The membrane will float; and the seed will sink to the bottom. Strain away membrane and water and place seeds in bowl.
  2. Add pomegranate juice and lime juice to seeds; toss to coat evenly. Add minced red onion, cilantro and diced pear; stir to combine. Sprinkle honey over seed mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips or use as a garnish for fish or chicken.
