Avocado and Pomegranate Chip Dip

Sunday, December 4, 2011

Welcome to the Recipe Shoebox's goodie-a-day Holiday Baking series.  Come back daily through December for a new holiday recipe! 
Okay, okay...I know this isn't technically a goodie recipe, but it's so good, so different, and so Christmasy looking that I just couldn't resist sharing it here.  Avocados and pomegranate may sound like such a weird combination, but the creaminess of the avocados actually complements the tart juiciness of the pomegranate seeds in an unexpectedly yummy way.  Every time I've served this it has disappeared quickly, so you may want to save out your portion before serving to everyone else! ;)

Adding pomegranate to avocado/tomato/onion salsa of sorts is something I never would've thought to do, but it sounds and look amazing. Definitely festive, too. <3

Made this today for a big family Christmas party and it was a huge hit! I had to hide a little bit for my husband who came late and he loved it. Thanks for sharing the recipe--I would never have thought to add pomegranate. We loved it and I'm sure it will be a regular part of our Christmas celebrations from now on!
