Pomegranate Kiwi Salsa

This pomegranate seed recipe was inspired by simplyrecipes.com and is sure to be a hit at your next holiday gathering. You can serve it with raw flax crackers, jicama rounds, or baked tortilla chips for a healthy holiday platter. My husband enjoyed it over some black beans and it also makes a great topping to spice up a batch of quinoa.

4 ripe peeled and chopped kiwifruit
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 avocado chopped
1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh jalapeño (seeds removed)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in a bowl and gently fold ingredients together. Makes about 1 and ½ cups.

Pomegranate Radish Salad

This pomegranate seed recipe is a tasty way to eat radishes and it makes a great side salad or add your favorite greens and garbanzo or kidney beans for a more filling salad. (Radishes are a good source of potassium and vitamin C, they support the liver, and can help to relieve congestion in the respiratory system.)

5 red radishes chopped
3 tablespoons Citrus Honey Chia Seed Vinaigrette
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Add all ingredients together and let marinate for at least one hour before serving.

Hope these two pomegranate seed recipes inspire you to start adding pomegranate seeds to your cuisine! And as always, please share your favorite pomegranate seed recipes in the comments section below.

P.S. Note: Eating pomegranates might interfere with certain medications in the same way that grapefruit juice does. Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist about any drug interactions.
