Pomegranate Herb Vinaigrette


Let’s take control of our salad dressing situation with this pomegranate herb vinaigrette. A vinaigrette in its simplest form is a mixture of an acid and oil; other ingredients added to add flavor. This vinaigrette uses lemon juice and pomegranate (acidic ingredients ) and olive oil as its base. The fresh rosemary, thyme, garlic and mustard powder add more interest to the flavor. I think the star of this recipe is the pomegranate, like it was in my sweet potato and pomegranate salad.  Pomegranate packs a ton of micronutrients and phytonutrients like anthocyanins which provide that wonderful red color.
