Pomegranate Mango Salsa has me drooling over here! My friend Emily from One Lovely Life is here today sharing an amazing, fresh, and healthy recipe. Take it away, Emily!

I can’t get enough of pomegranate these days. Knowing that the season winds down at the end of this month makes me all the more eager to fit in pomegranate any way I can. This season, I’ve been adding it to my favorite savory dishes (like this rice), and it’s been so fun to learn that it tastes just as good in savory dishes as it does in sweet ones. My latest favorite savory-sweet twist: Pomegranate Mango Salsa!

This Pomegranate Mango Salsa tastes as fabulous as it looks and–bonus–fits almost any dietary restriction (gluten free, dairy free, vegan, sugar free, paleo, even Whole30!). The little pomegranate arils look like little gems peeking out from between the creamy avocado and the sweet mango. Cilantro, salt, and a bit of lime juice really bring everything together, and man-oh-man… you’re going to find yourself eating little spoonfuls of the stuff.

What can I serve this salsa with?

If you want something easy to serve to a crowd, chips are always an excellent choice. There are tons of other ways to eat it though! Put some of this salsa on a salad for extra flavor, spoon it over Honey Lime Tilapia for an incredible dinner, on top of your favorite south-of-the-border dish, or on a rice bowl for a tasty lunch!

How long does fresh salsa last in the fridge?

Homemade salsa lasts a few days in the fridge in an airtight container. The avocado can turn brown after a day or two so eat it while its still colorful!

Is a brown avocado safe to eat?

Avocados turn brown when exposed to air, just like apples do. While it may look unappetizing, it is normal and isn’t dangerous to your health. Just make sure to eat the avocado before the brown avocado becomes a spoiled avocado!
