I love this recipe! It is very pretty and festive looking and goes great with hint of lime tortila chips...one tip...when seeding the pomegranate--place it in water, fully submerged. The seeds will sink, the rind will rise and make for stainless removal! Enjoy!

I brought this to a party and it was a huge hit - people ask for it specifically now. I did up the spice in the salsa by adding more peppers (I did 3 jalepenos and 3 serranos - gave it a really good kick).

Great salsa! Very unique, wonderful flavor combination and beautiful colors. Even better with a chopped cucumber! I use this for wraps and as a topping for burgers. So flavorful, healthy and fresh.

This is my favorite salsa recipe. I buy pomegranates on sale or discounted and I freeze the juicy seeds and save them to make this salsa with!

I have made this salsa 2 years in a row for thanksgiving. My family loves eating it with a piece of meat. Which they eat it with deer meat. I am making it this year for a total of 3 years! I LOVE THIS SALSA IT IS GENIUS

I like the recipe. It tastes really good. However, I am not sure I made it right. I do not know what a "sprig" means or if "bunches" is what is sold at the store? Thanks.

This recipe is fabulous, it is like a party in your mouth with all of the flavors. The lime Tortilla chips are the perfect accompaniment to go with it. I am not fond of Italian Parsley so I omitted it.

Wasn't sure how this was going to be, but I like salsa and I've been addicted to pomegranates the past few weeks... It was really good, and looks great, too. Only thing is, my "bunches" must be bigger than the authors; I used one bunch of cilantro and one bunch of parsley, and the pomegranate seeds got lost, even with a large fruit. Ended up using two fruits' worth of seeds, and added some more lime juice and mint. People were a little skeptical, but those who tried it loved it!
