Recipe Directions for Pomegranate, Gouda and Pear Quesadilla with POM Salsa -D B-

  1. Quesadilla:

  4. Using fingers, press 1 teaspoon of arils into cheese.

  5. Add 2 slices of pear, sprinkle with sugar. Fold tortilla in half.

  6. Add 1/2 teaspoon oil to a nonstick skillet and heat.

  7. Place folded tortillas in the pan and brown lightly; turn over and cook until crisp. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon of oil if needed.

  8. Cut each tortilla into halves and serve with POM Salsa

  9. POM Salsa:

  10. Score 2-3 fresh pomegranates and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate under water to free the arils (seed sacs).
