The New Gauc on the Block‏

The first time my friend, Julie, gave me this recipe, I was a bit taken aback by the ingredients. How can this possibly be the newest obsession of my friends? One taste of this guacamole and you will probably become addicted like our family has. It is now the most requested dish at our summer barbecues.
Pomegranate Guacamole
Ingredients:
3 1/2 c. diced zucchini (12″ long, 1-1 1/2″ diameter), diced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 1/2 T. olive oil
1/2 t. oregano
3/4 t. kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
1/2 c. finely chopped red onion
1 avocado, diced in 1/4 inch pieces
1/2 c. pomegranate seeds (You can find pomegranates at your local grocery store. It usually takes 1 pomegranate to make a 1/2 c.)
2 T feta cheese, crumbled
1 1/2 T. lime juice
Pita chips
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Toss zucchini with oil, oregano, salt & pepper.
  3. Spread on cookie sheet and roast tossing once till golden brown or about 25-30 minutes. (I use foil on the cookie sheet to help with cleanup.)
  4. Cool completely.
  5. Transfer zucchini to bowl, add onion, avocado, pomegranate seeds, feta, lime juice, salt & pepper to taste and gently toss. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or up to 3 hours before serving with pita chips.
Enjoy and take it to your next barbecue…if it makes there!

    Kim – I really enjoy checking out your recipes. I like how you offer a variety of meal options, while also making “easy” a part each menu planning. This Guac will be heading to my next summer party for sure!
