Pomegranate seeds add a fresh beauty and taste to guacamole, and the chunky style livens up the recipe. Try this combination with pico de gallo for a fast, fresh, delicious guacamole. It's also great on everything from chips and cucumber rounds to turkey burgers, fish and chicken.

Ingredients

Hass avocados 2 , cut into 1/2 inch segments
Pico de gallo 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Chopped fresh cilantro 1 Tablespoon
Lime 1 , juiced
Pomegranate seeds 2 Tablespoon
Sea salt To Taste

Directions

Makes approximately 2 cups

Place avocado in a glass or other non-reactive bowl, being careful not to mash the segments. Add pico de gallo, cilantro and lime juice to bowl. Stir well, but carefully. Add pomegranate seeds, and finish with sea salt to taste. Stir just to mix ingredients.

Beauty Tip:

Have an extra half of an avocado? Why not make a dry skin mask! Avocados are deeply nourishing to your skin and are full of vitamins and other skin soothers. All you have to do is mash one-half of an avocado in a wooden bowl until it's creamy. Then apply the mashed avocado to a clean, dry face using circular motions and avoiding the eye area. After 20-30 minutes, wash the avocado mask off your face with warm water. It’s that easy. For extra moisture, mix a teaspoon each of olive oil and honey in with the avocado before applying it to your face.

Safety Reminder: Be sure to test a small amount of the mixture on your arm ahead of time to make sure you’re not sensitive to any of the ingredients in the facial mask.
