The ancient pomegranate is by far one of my favorite fruits! Cutting and deseeding one can be a tedious process for some, but for me it is a labor of love. Street vendors throughout Mexico sell the seeds by the cupful with fresh lime juice and chile salt. Cultural traditions hold that pomegranates symbolize prosperity and abundance, so I encourage you to crack one open and experience all that this special fruit has to offer to kick off the New Year!
1 large pomegranate
1 lime (I prefer Mexican or key limes)
½ teaspoon chile salt (or to taste)
- Cut and deseed pomegranate. I found this how-to video on the Muy Bueno blog very helpful in showing how to do this and avoid making a mess!
- Squeeze lime juice evenly over pomegranates and mix well.
- Sprinkle with chile salt and enjoy!
