Guess what this week is on MPK??!! Does the picture above give it away??!! Indeed, it’s Pomegranate Week 2012! I can’t believe this is the fourth year that I am posting recipes for Pomegranate Week! The first recipe this year is a simple, yet deliciously refreshing salad. Sometimes four ingredients can make an amazing recipe! This Cucumber and Pomegranate Salad is simple to make and it sure is a winner!
2 cups Persian small diced cucumbers
1 cup pomegranate seeds
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground Angelica
The trick here is to make sure that the cucumbers are diced fairly small.
Place diced cucumbers in a bowl then add pomegranate seeds.
With a spoon give it a gentle mix.
