I’ve got a super tasty recipe that will switch things up for you in the salad department. I really need to keep our salads interesting to ensure I enjoy them enough to eat, so I’m excited about this new combo—cauliflower and pomegranate! I served it with homemade chicken nuggets, some of which ended up just getting mixed into the salad…yum. This one was great leftover (in a lunch box or straight out of the fridge) so double the recipe if you want extras on hand!
Pomegranate Arils (a.k.a. Seeds)
You can buy pomegranates already seeded for you, but don’t be afraid to try to open one yourself—it’s not hard! I like to cut a slit and then open mine up in a bowl of water to avoid the red juices splattering everywhere. They can stain so it’s an easy way to be extra careful.
It’s hard to describe how fresh and tasty the little arils are as they pop in your mouth. They’re of course great on salads, as shown in this recipe, but also tasty in a bowl of yogurt, or even just eaten plain by themselves. Pomegranate season is in the winter so enjoy them while you can. What’s your favorite way to eat pomegranates?

Yummy! I love pomegranate but I never tried it with cauliflower. So I decided to make the salad today and it was delicious. Thanks for this great recipe, Lisa.
This looks really good – have you tried it with Greek yogurt instead?
The Greek yogurt might be okay, it’ll just be a little thicker. – Nicole
Looks delicious and quite easy to prepare, I must give it a try.
