My husband and I eat a lot of salads, and we have a tendency to go on vinaigrette-kicks. Ever since the weather turned chilly, we’ve been obsessed with one vinaigrette in particular: pomegranate molasses. It’s simultaneously sweet and tart – reminiscent of balsamic vinaigrette only much fruitier.
Pomegranate vinaigrette is perfect on winter salads and cool-weather greens like kale, chard, and spinach. It’s also lovely on roasted vegetables.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses*
- 2 tablespoons warm water
- 2 teaspoons honey or agave nectar
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl or shake in a mason jar. Drizzle on greens or roasted vegetables.
