Pomegranate and Pomelit Salad

August30

Ingredients

1 large Pomelit (a hybrid of Pomelo and Grapefruit – if you cannot get one, use a Pomelo, and add 1 tbsp. freshly-squeezed lemon)
1 cup pomegranate seeds
½ cup chives, chopped (only the green parts)
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
salt for seasoning

Preparation

Peel and take the Pomelit apart into its individual segments.
Peel each segment, and break the “meat” into 1″ pieces.
Gently stir in the pomegranate seeds and green onions.
Add the oil and season with salt to taste.
Garnish with a few leaves of spearmint.

1/2 tsp. sweet paprika

Place all vegetables in a bowl, add all dressing ingredients and toss until all vegetables are covered.
I recommend making it at least 2 hours before serving, so that the vegetables soak in some of the dressing. Toss again before serving.

I’ve been thinking about setting up a blog documenting my food experiments and ensuing recipes for a while now… Food is my passion, and spending time in the kitchen creating yummy food is my favorite passtime!

I was almost there a few years back, when I found out my body doesn’t take kindly to certain types of food (Gluten, cow’s-milk, soy, peppers, eggplants, citrus fruit, yada yada yada).

So…. I took a couple of months to whine and feel sorry for myself. Then I got mad–I’m always at my best when I get mad–and started experimenting with substitutes. I can now make pretty much anything I used to make, within my limits.

This blog includes recipes I converted (with credit), or developed myself.

I take requests, and am happy to answer any questions about cooking and baking, and am honest enough to tell you straight when I don’t know the answer, and try to refer you to a source that does…

I hope you’ll join me on my journey.
