Friday Foodie: Guacamole

Today's recipe comes from team member the Tangled Web courtesy of our "Show Us Your Recipe" link up.

Pomegranate Guacamole

1 pinch salt and pepper
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt and pepper
2 large avocados, pits removed, peeled and diced
3/4 cup pomegranate seeds, for garnish
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Cooking 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 and pepper to taste. Place guacamole in a serving bowl and sprinkle remaining pomegranate seeds on top for garnish. Serve with assorted color tortilla chips.
*Note-recently I made this again but I added sliced cherry tomatoes it was fantastic

Thanks Tangled Web! I'm looking forward to trying this.
