Recipe: Pomegranate and Cucumber Salad

  • Sometimes the most delicious things are the easiest to make. Wanted to share one of my favorite, easy, on-the-go salads. It’s so refreshing, delicious and healthy. Pomegranates are one of the oldest known fruits, originally native to Persia. They are a nutrient dense food rich in phytochemicals, which can lower blood pressure, help to prevent heart attacks, strokes and protect against cancers such as breast and prostate.

  • What you will need:

    1 1/2 to 2 cups pomegranate seeds
    2 1/2 cups chopped cucumber (English or Persian)
    1/3 cup Greek yogurt
    1-2 cloves garlic chopped or pressed
    red onion thinly sliced
    1 T chopped fresh or dried dill
    lemon
    salt & pepper

  • Cut up cucumber and chop dill. Thinly slice red onion. Place in a mixing bowl with the pomegranate seeds and add the pressed garlic.

  • Add the yogurt, a few squeezes of lemon and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

  • That’s all there is to it! This serves about 4 as a side dish and is an excellent accompaniment to fish. It’s so pretty too!
