Pomegranate: The Main Ingredient Of These Five Delicious Dishes

1. Pomegranate-Glazed Salmon – This hearty dish starts with a cut of salmon, pan-seared in butter and garlic. Then, it’s topped with a homemade glaze made of pomegranate juice, balsamic vinegar, honey, and a touch of chili flakes.

2. Pomegranate-Mint Salad – This zesty salad is the perfect accompaniment to any meal. It’s made using fresh baby greens such as spinach or arugula, pomegranate seeds, mint leaves, feta cheese, and a light olive-oil vinaigrette.

3. Pomegranate Chicken Kebabs – These flavorful chicken kebabs get their sweetness from pomegranate molasses, an ingredient made by reducing pomegranate juice down to a thick syrup. The marinade combines the sweet molasses with garlic, cumin, and olive oil.

4. Pomegranate Salsa – This delectable salsa is perfect for dipping chips or spooning over tacos or burritos. Start by blending together pomegranate seeds, diced tomatoes, red onion, jalapeños (or other chili pepper), garlic, lime juice, and cilantro.

5. Pomegranate-Ginger Parfait – For a light and healthy dessert, layer pomegranate juice with Greek yogurt and top it off with candied ginger for an extra kick of sweetness. Not only will it look beautiful, but this parfait is also packed with flavor.
