Spinach Pomegranate Salad

Rating: 4.7 stars
A very quick and nutritious salad made with pomegranate seeds and feta cheese.

Cranberry Pomegranate Sauce

Rating: 4.53 stars
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.

Mustard Pomegranate Pork Tenderloin

Rating: 4.11 stars
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: 4.58 stars
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: 4.71 stars
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!

The Best Vegetable Salad

Rating: 4.36 stars
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.

Blushing Pomegranate Chicken

Rating: 3.11 stars
Pomegranate marinated chicken simmers alongside ginger accented sweet potatoes. This recipe requires very little prep work and minimal attention so you can easily cook it while going about your holiday business! Serve over hot rice.

Chiles en Nogada (Mexican Stuffed Poblano Peppers in Walnut Sauce)
Rating: Unrated
This traditional Mexican dish is from the area of Puebla. Poblano chiles are stuffed with a flavorful ground pork stuffing, then covered in a creamy walnut sauce and garnished with pomegranate seeds and parsley. The long list of ingredients is deceiving - this make ahead dish is quite easy once you have all your ingredients!

Persimmon and Pomegranate Salad

Rating: 4.77 stars

A sweet and tangy fall salad with a bit of crunch and nuttiness tossed in from the pecans. I love pecans so I often double the amount of pecans.
