Pomegranate, Avocado, and Orange Salsa

As a gift, I had recently received a serving dish with three bowls, perfect for dips, and I knew I wanted to use it for the party. I chose to serve a cannellini bean dip, an artichoke and lemon pesto, and a pomegranate, avocado, and orange salsa, all of which complemented each other wonderfully. One of my favorite dip cookbooks is Skinny Dips by Diane Morgan. Her recipes tend to be quick, delicious, easy, and most importantly, healthy, or at least more healthy than a typical dip. A similar recipe to her pomegranate, avocado, and orange salsa can be found here, but I highly recommend the book, I have yet to be disappointed with a single recipe I've tried. The recipe is a bit labor intensive, supreming citrus is one of my least favorite cooking techniques, and pomegranates are notoriously difficult (tip: put the pomegranate in a bowl of water while removing the seeds, the seeds sink and the pith floats to the top), but it was completely worth it and I couldn't have been happier with the results.
