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.

*You can find pomegranate molasses at larger grocery chains, global food stores, and on the web. You can also make this Middle Eastern staple at home using pomegranate juice.
