This was delicious! The flavors were so bright and fresh. I forgot the green onions and skipped the jalepeno, but it was still great. I will definitely make this again for holiday celebrations. I've never dealt with pomegranates before and sacrificed a perfectly good t-shirt to the process because the seeds splattered bright red juice on it. Watch the chips carefully while they're baking - there's a very fine line between cooked perfectly and completely burnt.

Great recipe. I made it for a holiday party and everyone was asking for the recipe. So easy, the hardest thing is seeding the pomegranite. The chips are good but cut too small. The salad is great just plain.

Wonderful holiday appetizer. Have made several times and always get recipe requests!

I absolutely love this recipe. It's a lot of chopping and prep work, but completely worth it. I agree with the above review about cutting the clementine sections. They're too big otherwise. When pomegranates aren't in season I've made this with mango and it was great.

Absolutely fantastic. Would definitely make this again. Big hit at girls games night. Made exactly as instructed in the recipe, a bit time consuming but well worth it. I didn't take the time to make the spiced chips, served instead with organic blue corn chips. Yummy !!!

I made the salsa, not the chips. It was truly outstanding! The salsa is colorful, juicy, tasty, and beautiful. The only thing I did slightly different was to cut the clementine sections into thirds. A single clementine section is simply too large to be in salsa. This will become my entertaining standby whenever pomegranates are available (though I think it'd be just as good without them, if not as colorful). Highly recommend!

Made this for a holiday cocktail party and it was popular! Prepared the salsa exactly as directed but served with store-bought tortilla chips instead of the baked tortillas for convenience. I would have preferred the salsa a bit more spicy -- jalapenos can vary in heat, so next time I will taste and adjust as necessary.

Made as written, but omitted the jalapeno to make it more kid friendly. Everyone loved. I prepped my pomegranate and clemetines the night before along with the honey and salt so I wouldn't forget it, then finished off right before serving. I used a good quality store bought chip rather than making my own.

This is fantastic! I made it for our Christmas potluck at work and it was the only dish completely eaten! I also did not make the chips, but cut the clemtines and added the lime juice, honey, and jalepenos the night before. Threw the rest together 1/2 hour before the party and it worked well.

Our family makes this every Christmas season. The recipe takes effort to put together, but it is TOTALLY worth it. It has become a holiday tradition in our home...soooooo good!!
