Pomegranate Guacamole

Summer is approaching here in North Brooklyn making it time to break out the summer recipes just before Memorial Day officially ushers in the lazy hazy days. This low calorie, low sodium, vegan pomegranate guacamole not only tastes great but is pleasant to look upon. Enjoy!

Ingredients:-

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

3/4 cup pomegranate seeds, for garnish

2 large avocados, pits removed, peeled and diced

1 pinch salt

Directions:

Place diced avocados in bowl. Score fresh pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate underwater to free the seeds. The seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the seeds in a separate bowl. Reserve 1/2 cup of the seeds from fruit and set aside. Add 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds and the remaining ingredients to the diced avocados. Mix well. Add salt to taste. Place guacamole in a serving bowl and sprinkle remaining pomegranate seeds on top for garnish. Serve with assorted color tortilla chips.
