Pomegranate Vinaigrette

So an ingredient I have never tried before - Pomegranate Juice. Have you ever tried it. Seems to be one of the new hot things in antioxidants. I liked it, the taste reminds me somewhat of cranberry juice.

I was trying to think of something original to make with the juice, so I made a Pomegranate Vinaigrette.

In the salad was 1 large chicken breast (I just seasoned with lemon pepper and a little salt, then sauteed in a non-stick skillet), a few tiny bell peppers, about 1/2 c feta, 1 large tomato, and the vinaigrette. Pretty simple, but tasty!

Pomegranate Vinaigrette
1/2 c pomegranate juice (I used POM Wonderful)
1/4 c Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 c white wine vinegar
1/2 garlic clove, grated
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt
about 6 grind black pepper

Place all ingredients in a curette and shake shake shake. If you don't have one, just put it in a bowl and whisk. (If you are making my above salad, this is way too much dressing - save some for another yummy salad. Keeps well in the fridge. )

*POM Wonderful sent me some pomegranate juice and asked that I make up a recipe using it. It was a fun and delicious experiment!

What a brilliant idea to replace most of the vinegar with POM! Love it! This would be fabulous on greens as well as fresh fruit!

I love to add pomegranate seeds to my salad. I bet they would go perfectly with your pomegranate vinaigrette.
