Bangin' Pomegranate Salad with Pomegranate Juice
Pomegranates are in season and its time to play with them! Pomegranates are filled with antioxidants, and they aid in cell rejuvenation which helps heal wounds and gives the skin a natural healthy glow. This recipe is simple and satisfying.
5 ounce Arugula or Mixed Baby Greens
1 cup Walnuts, crushed by hand
1½ tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Flaxseed Oil
Put the greens in a bowl like for any salad. Open a pomegranate and scoop out the seeds. This may take some time, because the seeds have to be picked out without popping them. Put the seeds in a separate bowl.
crush the walnuts by hand or lightly in a food processor or blender.
toss the seeds, walnuts, and oil on top of the greens, stir, and enjoy!
heres the fun part
take 1 pomegranate, bang it on the table like you mean it, until it gets soft. roll it against the corners, sit on it, squeeze your stress out on it. This may take a couple of minutes. Careful of any soft spots on the pomegranate where the juice may come out. These spots will be where you want to stick you’re straw when your done!
for a more thorough way to make sure you get the juice popped out of every seed: after you are done bangin the pomegranate, cut open the very top and pour out the juice into a cup, scoop out the seeds and send them through a juicer. then refill the pomegranate with all the juice, and stick a straw in the opening on top.
