Citrus – Pomegranate Salad
Nothing refreshes like this Greek salad of citrus, pomegranate and mint. It’s the perfect foil for any rich meal and a wonderful example of the vibrant but simple Mediterranean Diet. Remember to use extra virgin Greek olive oil and sea salt for the best flavor!
- Peel the oranges and grapefruit. Cut the citrus into rings and set aside.
- Cut the pomegranate in half across the middle and place the cut side in the palm of your hand. Have a bowl ready. Using a tablespoon, tap vigorously on the exterior of the fruit, letting the arils fall into the bowl.
- Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey, smoked or regular sea salt and black pepper until smooth.
- Set the citrus slices decoratively on a platter, alternating between the colors of the orange, blood orange and grapefruit. Scatter the pomegranate over the top. Drizzle with the dressing and garnish with the mint. Serve.
