As I promised in this week’s newsletter, here’s my new recipe for pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing – I know, it seems like salad dressings are all we do for recipes these days (see tahini miso dressing here!), but what can I say that I haven’t already said? I really like salad!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Half a pomegranate
- 1/4 cup oil (olive, Udo’s, canola, whatever you like)
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (we used white balsamic, red works too)
- A pinch of pepper
- A pinch of garlic powder
Mix it up in a blender – any blender will probably work, but we use a Vita-Mix, just like we have for the past 13 years or so – we use it almost every day, and if you’d like one you can use code 06-002733 at vitamix.com to get free shipping (and we’ll get a commission which helps pay the bills around here.)
This is a great dressing that you can make in small batches like I did or double it up. I like to keep half the pomegranate to either snack on or throw into the salad as a topping. Pomegranates are cheap this time of year around here, and they’re loaded with antioxidants and other things I don’t pretend to understand beyond the fact that they’re super good for you.
But like I said, be careful opening them up or you will end up with some crazy stains on your shirt!
