The ruby red pomegranate jewels add some major bling to the salsa and I love the juicy pop in every bite! And of course I stirred in some avocado. Avocado make everything better and you’ve gotta have some green to go with the red. This salsa is festive!

I LOVE this salsa. It is bursting with flavor! Plus, it’s healthy…well, as long as you don’t eat too many tortilla chips. I always do, but at least I am getting in some good protein and fruit at the same time:)

  1. This looks delicious and so pretty. I love pretty much anything with pomegranates in it. But how do you stop the avocado from going brown? And how long does it last?

  2. What a creative combo! Hmmm, I would never in a million years thought of black beans and pomegranate! I love the idea and it’s so festive! I can’t believe Christmas is in two days, crazy! Happy Holidays to you and your family!

  3. This is the most pimped out salsa I have ever seen! It’s so pretty and creative times 1000! My hubby requested appies for Christmas dinner and now I have a great addition..thanks girl!

  4. This picture made me put down my coffee and sit up straight in my chair. My Christmas Eve menu was all set- but now I’m changing it! That looks amazing, and I know my family will love it. Thank you SO much!!

  5. This is so easy, festive, and has the most gorgeous colors! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

  6. I just wanted to come back and tell you that I made this and it was a tremendous hit! People couldn’t stop eating it. I saved a little for myself and I’m eating it right now with pita chips. It was so nice to have a very healthy dish that was also so delicious and tempting. This will now be a staple at parties. Thank you SO much!!

  7. I love everything about this recipe, oh my gosh! I can just imagine how delicious the combo of crunchy pomegranate seeds and soft avocado and beans is, not to mention how beautiful it looks. I’ve actually featured this recipe (or, well, a link to it) on my blog’s Weekend Wrap-Up, and wanted to stop by to thank you for sharing it with us! I hope you have a Happy & Healthy New Year 🙂

    Here’s a link to the wrap-up, if you’re interested:

  8. This is amazing. Made it for a birthday celebration, along with the Roasted Chickpea fajitas. So good – crunchy, juicy, creamy, tart, a little spicy. I devoured the leftovers and I’m already planning to make another batch. It kept well for a couple days with hardly any browning of the avocados. Must be the lime juice…

  9. This was SO GOOD! I made it for Christmas AND for New Year’s Eve, and everyone loved it! Great recipe, thank you!

  10. Our backyard pomegranate bush is a GREAT producer – but a pain because it’s always been a hassle getting those red seeds out of the hull without turning red yourself!!! Well this past Christmas, I found an awesome tool at Sur la Table called The Pomegranate Tool. Removes the seeds in quick order and doesn’t turn your counter into a bloody mess…recommend highly!!! Can’t wait to try this colorful salsa…

  11. Two others that seem too bee missing from a lot of the good for you recipes is: ease and selection:
    both of which are offered up in the Hungry Girl cook books.
    Go ahead. This time frame accounts for approximately 2,000 generations of humazns since the
    great split, during which time modern genetic features developed

  12. I actually made this salsa for new years eve to bring to a friend’s house. It was a huge hit! I love your recipes please keep them coming!

  13. I have made this so many times! The flavors meld together fantastically! Best recipe ever and I get begged from friends and family to make this every time we have a get-together! Thank you for the fabulous recipe!

  14. 5 stars
    The first time that I made I left out the black beans and avocado and was left with a very refreshing salsa.  This is a keeper recipe. So special for the holidays. I may use instead of cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. Next time I will add the beans and avocado as an appetizer. I am sure it will also be delicious.
