Pomegranate salad dressed with a chive and mustard dressing

I have to admit I love pomegranate and love how they grow locally here but I almost never buy them nor cook with them. Went we were at the farmer’s market last Sunday I decided to change that and bought a few. Pomegranate is loaded with all good stuff such as fibers, potassium and antioxidants so it’s a fruit I indeed would like to eat more of.

Besides just eating it like it is I made a salad with the fruit and it was so colorful and bursting with flavors. I also discovered that Noah really enjoyed the seeds as well although I kept and watchful eye on him to make sure he did not choke on them. He is getting so good at feeding himself and therefore family dinner time is more enjoyable for everyone.

I also want to remind you of the book and bag give away which ends on Friday.
