Great! This salad is bright crisp and fresh! The dressing is tad tart. To remedy this I recommend using the zest and juice of only 1/2 lemon and adding 2 Tbsp. honey to the dressing. Some chopped walnuts rounded out the salad nicely. This salad would go great with holiday dinners since pomegranates are in season then.
I made this last night for family and friends. Everyone loved it. I hate when people change the recipe but it was REALLY tart so I doubled everything but the lemon juice and zest when making the dressing. A very different salad! It was time consuming getting the seeds out of the pomegranate be careful not to squirt on good clothes....I think the juice stains.
I didn't make the salad but I am rating the recipe for the dressing. I wanted a lemon vinaigrette to marinate some blanched chilled asparagus. It was delicious! I don't know about the "too tart" that other reviewers mentioned it didn't seem that way to me. I guess it could depend on the size of the lemon and the quality of the vinegar could vary too. I loved the fresh taste the lemon zest brought to the dressing.
I have been making this salad for many years and it is always a hit and the recipe is requested too many times to mention BUT the only exception to my recipe is that I use 2 tablespoons of maple syrup 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar and 1/2 tsp of oregano same amount of dijon and olive oil. the feta is reduced to 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup of toasted pine nuts.Try it you will like it alot!
This salad is DELICIOUS. I used fresh spinach with chopped romaine lettuce instead of the packaged bag greens. I also added a little more olive oil and salt to the vinagarette because it was a little too tart when I tasted it. It also seemed to make an awful lot so I didn't pour the entire amount on. Pomegranates were out of season when I made this so I used sliced fresh peaches instead and it worked wonderfully. The salad was a HUGE hit at my mom's birthday dinner and everyone went back for second helpings!
After getting the pomegranate seeds out the salad is super easy. The amount of lemon (1/2 or full) really depends on how juicy yours are. I had juicy lemons and used half a lemon and tested the taste and like it that way. If you have lemons that aren't very juicy 1 full one would probably be right.
This dressing is good but I did not care for it on this salad. I think it would compliment the salad to have a sweeter dressing. I will experiment with different dressings. I waited for others to voice their opinions and we all agreed with a sweet dressing this would be aces.
