Instructions for kids

Use a box grater to grate the carrots. Tear the cilantro with your hands into small pieces. Use your hands to wiggle the pomegranate seeds (like a loose tooth) to remove from the inside of the fruit. Squeeze the lime, and measure 1 tablespoon of juice.

Place all ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine. Serve with tortilla chips.
