Hi guys!

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.

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.

    Any ideas on something to use instead of cilantro? (Allergic)

      What about parsley or just leave it out?

      You could maybe try basil??? Start with less though and add more. It would totally change the flavor profile though.

      If you wanted just a little color you could do parsley…. but cilantro is one of the key flavors so I can’t promise it would taste the same.

    A very colourful and refreshing salsa. Love the combination of pomegranate and cucumber. I remember when my twins were babies, they were a handful but the joy of my life.

    I would not have thought to put pomegranates and cucumbers together. It would be a perfect dish for a holiday party!
