Pomegranates are festive. They are my favorite fruit- a bit labor intensive to take the seeds out but so worth all the work. For some reason, I can’ get myself to buy the shelled ones in the stores- so I choose to put in the work.
I love the tangy taste but most of all I love the way the seeds look- like tiny jewels.
I decided to incorporate a salad made with pomegranate seeds dressed with a pomegranate vinaigrette. I had a huge bowl filled with pomegranate seeds and a chunk of feta in my fridge. I thought of feta cheese to cut the tang of the pomegranate seeds. For the vinaigrette, I took out my bottle of pomegranate glaze. I mixed in some white wine vinegar a bit of honey and of course some extra virgin olive oil. The flavors were incredible- tangy, sweet and savory.
Definitely a great salad for the big feast..

Add the pomegranate glaze, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper into a medium bowl. Drizzle the olive oil slowly while whisking the dressing till it emulsifies.
Drizzle the dressing onto the greens, toss and serve.
