Green Salad with Pomegranate

Ingredients

    Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) pomegranate juice
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) honey
  • A hint of garlic, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper

    Salad

  • 10 cups (2.5 litres) mesclun or lamb lettuce
  • 1 cup (250 ml) pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) sliced almonds, toasted

Preparation

  1. In a bowl, blend all the ingredients with a whisk. Season with salt and pepper.

Salad

  1. In a bowl, toss the lettuce with the vinaigrette. Adjust the seasoning. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and toasted almonds.
  2. Serve with the Four-Cheese Terrine or the Three-Cheese “Fondue Parmesan”.

Note

To seed a pomegranate, cut the base so as to stabilize the fruit. Score into quarters and tear the grenade with your hands. With your fingers, remove the seeds in a bowl filled with water. The white skin of the fruit will float in the water and you can easily retrieve the seeds.
