Pomegranate Orange Salsa

Pomegranates give this salsa a wonderful sweet-tart flavor. About 4 to 5 medium fruits will yield enough for this recipe. —Nancee Maynard, Box Elder, South Dakota

    Had extra pomegranate and wanted to use them up. This was different and a healthy snack. I used lime juice for flavor.

    Tried this at a friend's party. This recipe should never have been published. I wonder if the people who write these recipes have ever actually even tasted them.
