Barcelona, Fresh Produce

Nachos + Pomegranate Salsa and Chunky Guacamole

Falling into fall is so wonderful. All the deep colors. All the versatility of the ingredients in the season: squash, artichokes, cauliflower, pomegranate, sweet potato… Sweet, savory, sour, salty, bitter… You can achieve so many layers of flavor with these ingredients it just makes my mouth water with excitement. I just love going to the market and seeing how as the year progresses the colors at each section change. although in Barcelona autumn is pretty much an indian summer, it’s delightful. I’m constantly looking at different sources of inspiration, and I love sharing them with everyone else. One of my favorite blogs is The Delicious Life, it’s so beautiful and real. Just straightforward food without all of the nonsense of unnecessary adjectives to describe beautiful and delicious food. There, I found a tasty pomegranate salsa recipe, which I’ve decided to make and adjust to my likes and haves.

Also, I took advantage on the fact that it’s National Nachos Day, I just needed an excuse to make nachos and salsa!

This is what you’ll need:

Pomegranate Salsa

  • 1 Very ripe pomegranate
  • A small handful of cilantro
  • Olive oil
  • 1 Lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbspoons of red onions

Process:

Soak the (chopped into cubes) red onions in water for about 20 minutes, this is so they’re not too pungent. Then you just have to deseed the pomegranate. Chop the cilantro and mix all the other ingredients. Salt to taste, this part is up to you. Half a teaspoon is fine.
