Feeling festive? Try my Pomegranate Cucumber Salsa recipe for your next holiday party!
I’m currently sitting on the couch in between feedings watching the twins sleep. They are pretty adorable and as tired as I am, life is pretty sweet right now. I’m definitely not cooking much these days (Thank you to all my generous friends who have dropped off meals at our house!,) but before they came I made some recipes to share with you over the next few weeks. One of them is this Pomegranate Cucumber Salsa recipe. This recipe is the perfect winter salsa and delightfully red and green for the holidays.
Pomegranate Cucumber Salsa recipe
Pomegranates are in season in December and it’s the perfect time to enjoy this antioxidant-filled fruit. You can buy the little seeds or arils already separated from the fruit or buy the whole fruit and take them out yourself. All you do is cut around the outside of the fruit like an orange, place the pieces in water and watch the arils float to the top.
The sweet, rich and tangy flavor is perfect with the cool crisp cucumber, warm jalapeno, and fragrant cilantro. Serve my Pomegranate Cucumber Salsa recipe with salty chips for the perfect winter appetizer or snack. The salty and sweet combo is sheer perfection.
This recipe is only 6 ingredients so you can throw this together in the flash. Can’t beat that during the busy holiday season.
The flavors here are familiar yet totally unexpected! I know it would be a hit at any party this season. I think this dish is totally craveable and addictive.
Plus in a season of heavy, rich food my Pomegranate Cucumber Salsa recipe is light and refreshing. The kind of dish that disappears from the holiday spread first.
I hope you’ll give my Pomegranate Cucumber Salsa recipe a try! I love it and think you will too. Come back Friday for more twin photos. 🙂
