Spinach Salad

Spinach Pomegranate Salad

Rating: Unrated
A very quick and nutritious salad made with pomegranate seeds and feta cheese.
Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Pomegranate Sauce

Rating: Unrated
This is a delicious fruit-filled version of cranberry sauce. The pomegranate is cooked separately to facilitate seed removal, then both parts are combined to finish cooking. It's wonderful as an accompaniment for poultry, and can be made into a lovely trifle-type dessert with vanilla pudding and pound cake.
Pork Tenderloin

Mustard Pomegranate Pork Tenderloin

Rating: Unrated
A new use for pomegranate juice! Try using fresh pomegranates, de-seeding them, and whirling the arils in a small food processor, and then straining to remove the pith. Fresh pomegranate juice is sweeter than the store-bought in a bottle.

Holiday Guacamole

Rating: Unrated
I tried this recipe at a friend of the family's. It is such a great twist to traditional guacamole. I wanted others to be able to try this. This not only tastes great but it looks nice as well. Don't be scared off by the ingredients, it is great with unsalted tortilla chips!

Lisa's Super Sangria

Rating: Unrated
My own special recipe for white sangria is a real party hit! Start this recipe the night before or early in the day when you need it. Be careful, though. You won't even know it's alcoholic until you're falling all over the floor! It's dangerously delicious!

Vegetable Salads

The Best Vegetable Salad

Rating: Unrated
This is a refreshing salad using all different kinds of vegetables. You can use whatever you like, but the main things that makes it good are the tomatoes and cucumbers. It is much like an Israeli salad. The homemade dressing is very good on it, but so is just plain olive oil.

Rating: Unrated

Inspiration and Ideas

Chef John's Sweet Potato Biscuits

Rating: Unrated
This would be a great way to use leftover Thanksgiving sweet potatoes, but they're even better right on that holiday table with the rest of the feast. By forming and folding dough, we develop beautifully buttery layers and avoid overmixing. These were delicious with the pomegranate spread.
