It’s pomegranate season and pomegranates are something you can’t have too much of in your life. One year I’m going to take a crack at making my own pomegranate molasses but in the meantime I just use them as much as possible of the while the good times last. This pomegranate salsa is really sensational and goes as a side with pretty much anything – Indian dal and rice, Mexican or Middle-Eastern. The first time I made it, I ate copious quantities of it on top of hummus and crackers. Unbelievably good! I’ve kept this salsa pretty simple and used tomatoes as a nice offset to the juicy sweetness of the pomegranate, but you can mix and match – try it with pear, cucumber or avocado and experiment with flavors. Add some crumbled feta cheese and team it with a Greek spinach rice and you have a meal fit for the gods.
