Fresh pomegranate relish is a bright and flavorful condiment that can be served with chicken, turkey, fish, or salad. A delightfully tart and juicy twist on classic cranberry relish that would be perfect for Thanksgiving dinner! Vegan, gluten free, paleo. 


  • 2 teaspoons honey, or maple syrup for a vegan option
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
  • Pinch of chili flakes (optional)


  1. Make the vinaigrette. In a small bowl whisk together honey, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and kosher salt until combined.
  2. Fold in remaining ingredients. Add pomegranate, red onion, parsley, and chili flakes if using, and gently stir to combine. Serve immediately or move to the refrigerator until ready to serve.


If you’re planning to make this relish more than an hour or two in advance I would recommend adding the parsley shortly before serving, so that it doesn’t wilt.
