Susan's Pomegranate Vinaigrette
Many members of DrFuhrman.com have fine tuned their culinary skills and Susan is no exception. In fact, she has even created a blog documenting some favorite nutritarian recipes that she’s developed. Below is one of her favorite, high nutrient salad dressings. She said the pomegranate concentrate can be found in many Whole Foods stores as well as in Mediterranean grocery stores. Other members have successfully made this dressing and love it also.
8 fluid ounces of 100% pure pomegranate juice (no sugar added)
1/8 cup good balsamic vinegar (start with less and add to taste)
2 T. pomegranate concentrate (100% pomegranate, cooked down to a syrupy texture)
½ cup chopped parsley
1 raw garlic clove, minced
2 scallions, finely chopped
2-3 T. tahini (ground sesame paste, no oil or salt added)
Mix the first three ingredients in a blender or food processor until well blended. Then add the parsley, garlic, scallions, and tahini. Pulse to incorporate, but do not liquify.
The dressing has a sweet, tart taste and coats lettuce leaves without using a lot of it.
