Pomegranate Salsa

A year ago my mom sent me the recipe for Pomegranate Salsa. It sounded super weird, so I didn't try it.
Then last week Mom made it, and it's so FREAKING AMAZING I had to share it with YOU!

You're welcome :)

4 ripe avocados, coarsely chopped
1 medium tomato, diced
2 T. onions, finely chopped
½ tsp ground coriander (not cumin, same family, different genus...)
1 tsp salt
2 T lemon juice
1 tsp Accent (flavor enhancer) (I don't use this, because hello, MSG, but you can. You know, if you want brain cancer and alien babies)
¼ tsp cayenne pepper, ground
Seeds of 1 whole pomegranate (YUM!!)

Mix it all together, adding avocado and pomegranate in last.

You can make this dish spicier by (get this) adding more of the spices.

The best part about this salsa (beside the taste) is that if you don't like the crunch of pomegranate seeds, you won't notice them because you eat the salsa on chips! Isn't that fabulous? Not convinced? Buy me the ingredients, and I'll make it. I may even let you have a bite...

Sounds...interesting. But, intriguing. I think I'll have to give this bad boy a try sometime soon. My only question is, if you don't use the Accent, do you substitute something else, or just leave it out altogether?

melissa, i tried it without the accent the second time and didn't notice a difference. i think you're safe to leave it out.
make a double batch though. it is SOOO good!

Okay, I got all the ingredients today. I'll probably make this tomorrow. If the avocados ripen enough by then...
