Honey and Pomegranate Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

This delicious pomegranate vinaigrette salad dressing is nice served over a mixed leaf salad. Alternatively you could drizzle it over salmon or shrimp. Use fresh or bottle pomegranate juice for this salad dressing recipe, although fresh is best because then you will have the pomegranate seeds to use for a garnish. Pomegranates have been popular throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean for a long time, and they are also well loved in Eastern Europe.

The following recipe contains honey and pomegranate juice for sweetness, red wine vinegar to add a sharp touch, and sunflower or olive oil (do not use extra-virgin olive oil) for a hearty richness. The pomegranate seeds and chives are optional but they are worth adding if you want an interesting texture. You can make this pomegranate vinaigrette salad dressing a few hours ahead, if you want, as long as you stir it well before serving.

Perhaps you are on the lookout for a brand new salad dressing recipe to make, to complement your favorite salad leaves and other salad components, in which case consider this one, because it will definitely make a welcome change. You might also like to try different salad components like pearl couscous, some exotic fruit, or even a new type of fish, to make something brand new for the family to enjoy.
