Mango & Pomegranate Salsa

If you want a simple and colorful appetizer, this is for you.  It

 

 

is so easy to put together and it makes a very colorful appetizer.  

About the Ingredients

  Mango-If 1 mango isn't enough, use 2.  The amount of ingredients

 

 

    in this recipe is up to you. 

  Pineapple-Fresh is best. Most food stores now offer fresh

 

 

   pineapple cut up in large cubes or slices.

  Pomegranate seeds-Usually the seeds of 1 pomegranate.

  Sweet peppers-I like to use the red and green ones for color!

  Cilantro-Clean thoroughly, dry and chop.  I have used parsley in

 

 

   a pinch to save a trip to the store.

  Red onion-Adds color and a toned down flavor.

  Jalapeno-Start with a small amount to keep it from

 

 

   overwhelming the dish.

  Lime-I always gently fold the other ingredients together and

 

 

   taste before adding the lime juice.  It gives such a fresh taste to

 

 

   this dish.  Even a little makes a difference.

  Sea salt-You may want more after tasting.

How to remove seeds from a pomegranate.

 

 

 

 

To remove the seeds from a pomegranate, thinly slice off the top,

 

 

then cut down into the white areas that divide the segments.  They usually

 

 

have 4 or 6 segemnts.  Thenit's a matter of removing the seeds.  You can

 

 

use your fingers or a small spoon.  Check all the little hidden pockets.  They

 

 

will store for several days when put into a sealed container.  I like to use

 

 

glass jars.
