Easy Pomegranate Salad Dressing

Pomegranates can be used to make a pomegranate salad dressing. This fruit is also used to make desserts and beverages. Pomegranate juice ranges from sour to sweet, although most fruits have a flavor somewhere between these two extremes. Pomegranate juice as a drink has been popular in Indian and Persian cuisine for a long time, and has been gaining popularity in the US and Canada over the past decade. Pomegranate syrup, or grenadine syrup as it is also known, is sweetened, thickened pomegranate juice.

It was used in a lot of Iranian recipes before tomatoes were introduced to the Middle East. The seeds of the fruit can be combined with ingredients like spinach, walnuts and feta cheese to make tangy, tasty salad recipes, but in the following pomegranate salad dressing, we are using pomegranate syrup, since it is sweet and rich, and goes nicely with the rice vinegar and lemon juice to balance out the otherwise tart taste.
