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
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!
