This fresh pomegranate salsa recipe is bursting with sweet-and-spicy flavor. It’s a fun holiday appetizer or wintertime snack. You can serve it with tortilla chips like any other salsa. Of course, a side of guacamole is always a good idea.
For a special Christmas salsa presentation, try it as shown here, with whipped goat cheese as a creamy base and the salsa arranged in a wreath-like shape on top. This variation goes well with sturdy crostini or crisp toasted pita. The whipped goat cheese component is included in the recipe, and it’s so easy to whip up.
- 2 cups pomegranate arils (about 2 pomegranate’s worth)
- ⅓ cup finely chopped red onion
- ¼ cup finely chopped cilantro
- 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped (use a smaller jalapeño for less heat, or leave in some seeds for more heat)
- ½ teaspoon lime zest
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- ⅛ teaspoon fine salt
Optional whipped goat cheese
- 4 to 5 ounces goat cheese
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 small-to-medium garlic clove
- ⅛ teaspoon fine salt
Serving suggestions: Crostini, toasted pita wedges, sturdy crackers or tortilla chips
