I toss them into my salads! My three kids love them. I would imagine you can throw them into a number of things.
Just cut em open and suck
that's what we do in our house anyway

Remove the seeds and eat them as is, or add to a fruit salad, as already mentioned.
If you'd like a tip on opening them and eating them out of hand, check this out:

Did you know that grenadine is from the juice of a pomegranate?
That's right, those Shirley Temples and Roy Rogers we enjoyed as kids were made from pomegranate juice. It was 7up and grenadine.
An alternative would be club soda, apple or green grape juice and pomegranate juice.
Pomegranates are an EXCELLENT source of antioxidants. Just open 'em and eat 'em whole! :D
I'm so glad the pomegranate season has begun - I always instinctively knew pomegranates were particularly good for me, even as a child.
If you check out the ORAC score of pomegranates you'll probably get a very pleasant surprise:
105 ORAC units/gram for pomegranate fruit
93 ORAC units/gram for cranberry fruit
77 ORAC units/gram for blueberry
55 ORAC units/gram for blackberries and raspberries.
