Hi everyone and happy post Thanksgiving. I hope yours was as nice as ours. I am very grateful for good friends and family, awesome food and much easier seeded pomegranate seeds that I purchased from Costco. What a time saving treat for a festive looking salad.
If you can’t buy the seeds already taken out, do the trick that my friend Leslie told me about: cut the pomegranate open and let the two halves soak in water. The seeds will rise to the top and the white part will loosen up a great deal, enough to easily remove the remaining seeds.
Try this attractive salad for the next holiday and know that you don’t need to work so hard to have a salad that wows ’em. Check out our photos from the big day on the TBK facebook fan page. Not a fan? Join our group! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Take-Back-the-Kitchen/132788611808
