Pomegranate molasses made and ready to use and I couldn't decide between Egyptian Barley Salad with Pomegranate and Feta or Egyptian Barley Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette. Sadly, neither of the table counterparts were jazzed about fresh seeds in their salad and I didn't have feta cheese to complete the salad anyways. Instead a vinaigrette was made combining flavors from both recipes.
In a large bowl, the following were whisked: 1/8 cup olive oil, 1 heaping tablespoon pomegranate molasses, half teaspoon lemon juice, pinch of cinnamon, pinch of comino, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Scaled for Likability: Great
Vinaigrette is one of our preferred dressings. You know, mayo and what not. Gross. In the past there has been balsamic, French, raspberry, olive oil and vinegar, lemon, red wine, and Italian. Never once has there been pomegranate but there should have been. Especially when served over rocket greens. Bitter greens, sweet dressing. Perfect. Could have done without the carrots but the celery was a nice touch.
