Pomegranate Avocado Salsa

Here is my absolute favorite appetizer of all time that I make for almost every get-together during pomegranate season…Pomegranate-Avocado Salsa. It’s always a hit with the sweet bling of pomegranate arils, the tart of clementines and the zip of a jalapeño.  Pretty much any tortilla chips will do since they mostly serve as a vehicle to consume the delicious salsa. If you feel a little guilty about eating the tortilla chips, you can make yourself feel better by eating the rest of the salsa (it makes a huge batch) atop a bed of lovely greens for lunch the next day. This recipe was a hand-me-down from my sister and the name Joan Saunders is at the bottom. So thanks to Joan, for this one:
