Pomegranate with pine nut and honey salad
Looking for a healthy snack? Here’s an idea for a pomegranate and pine nut salad. Very quick and very pretty. It comes from the Middle East, where pomegranates signify good luck and prosperity. This salad is served to welcome guests as a sign of hospitality. It’s a really refreshing and light pudding.
Ingredients (for two people):
2 tbsp pine nuts
Juice from one orange
1 tsp honey
Handful of mint leaves
- Toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan until you can smell them, don’t let them burn.
- Cut the pomegranate in half, cup it in your hand with the seed side facing down, and hit it with a wooden spoon until they all fall out, catching them in a bowl. Get rid of any pith that makes it through.
- Add pine nuts.
- Juice the orange, in a small bowl whisk the honey into the juice and add to the pomegranate and pine nuts. Mix.
- Chop the mint and sprinkle it on top of the salad.
