Minoo served a side dish of Pomegranate Salad with Nuts along with the Chickpea Curry and Moroccan Carrot Soup. Pomegranate is in season in late fall. Minoo’s daughter loves this salad and she must have it when pomegranate is in season.
Pomegranate is rich in Vitamin C. It is a good source of vitamin B5, potassium and polyphenols such as tannins and flavonoids. It is also rich in fiber which is entirely contained in the edible seeds which is also a supply of unsaturated oils.
- 2 cups pomegranate kernels
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts
- lemon juice from half a lemon or to taste
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- a teaspoon of mayo
P/S: You may add arugula or lettuce to this salad as well.
