I am so happy that pomegranates are in season! They are so delicious, and nutritious you will probably see them in a few of my upcoming recipes! Or at least until they are out of season.

What You Will Need:

1/2 C Pomegranate seeds

1 Small Jicama, peeled, sliced thin, then cut into match sticks (you can cut them into chunks if you prefer.)

Juice of 1 Lime

3 Large Oranges, peeled and segmented

1/4 C Fresh Cilantro, chopped

1/4 tsp Chipotle chili powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 Avocados, peeled then chopped

3 Tbsp Gorgonzola Cheese, crumbled

*Directions

Set up your Mis en Place 🙂 Are any of you finding your cooking to be a bit easier by doing this step first?

Cut the oranges into segments by first cutting off the top and bottom then, cutting the rest of the peel off.

In a glass bowl cut the peeled orange into segments so you only have left the membrane.

Squeeze the juice from the membrane into the bowl.
