This is a delicious way to enjoy pomegranate arils. The salty/cumin spiciness seems to continually reset your taste buds making the pomegranate flavor more intense than ever. The juice bursting in your mouth is a welcome calm to the medley.
1/2 pomegranate, seeded
1/2 avocado, sliced or cubed
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
2 to 3 tablespoons grapeseed or olive oil
2 to 3 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cumin, to taste
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
1. In a bowl, place avocado and pomegranate seeds. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
2. In separate bowl, whisk all dressing ingredients with fork in bowl or use a food processor.
3. Drizzle dressing over bowl of pomegranate/avocado and enjoy!
I always have leftover dressing.. so perhaps double the salad ingredients.. the dressing keeps well. My husband eats this as a dip with seedy tortillas (like the Food Should Taste Good brand). Delicious!
This morning's run was hot! 32 degrees and I had to take my gloves off after about 1 mile. Even though I decreased layers according to the temp, after the many mornings of -2 to 5, icy lashes and frozen snot; 32 felt like a sauna in my jacket. My doggy companion must have been heating up too, she stopped, dropped and rolled in the fresh powder!
