Pomegranates are one of my favourite fruits to eat and pomegranates can be used in so many ways as juices, a snack, salads and so much more. Pomegranates Originated from Armenia. Even though the Apricot is Armenia’s National fruit, but Pomegranates are equivalent to that. Pomegranates have so much nutrients and health benefits. You can get them at your local grocery store or specialty grocery stores. They are lovely fruits and I like them a lot. Well, here is how you make Talin’s Pomegranate Vegetable Salad.
You will need:
– 1 Red Onion – Chopped into Salad Size…
– 1 or 2 Romaine Lettuce – the full thing —- depends on how many people will be having salad.. Wash the romaine lettuce
– 2-3 Pomegranates — take the red seeds out — first before doing so, wash the pomegranate from the outside….
– Washed 1 Green Pepper — chop into salad size pieces.
– Half of a Cucumber or a whole one — Washed and chopped into salad size pieces.
– 1 or 2 tomato’s on a vine — washed and chopped into salad sized pieces.
– 2 or 3 Celery Sticks WASHED. Chopped into elbow macaroni like pieces but slightly bigger…..
– 2 Lemons washed skin — Squeezed ————— Mix this with the 2 ingredients below:
– 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
– 2-3 sprinkles of SEA SALT
—- Optional — You can put Feta Cheese, A little Cracked black pepper, Black Olives…
*****Remember to wash all your ingedients very well and discard the ends.******
Just incorporate all the salad ingredients into a big salad bowl, then add the pomegranate seeds on top then the Lemon Olive Oil juice, then toss and mix the salad very well until all the ingredients incorporate with each other and there you have it. A HEALTHY SALAD.
hmm, that sounds pretty good. 🙂
Pomegranate is definitely one of those things that I would like to use more. Didn’t realize that they originated from Armenia.
Pomegranate, apricot…both are not common in my country and remind me of a land far away, where I wish to visit some day.
This sounds tasty. My beloved other half loves pomegranate. I will propose it to her!
SOUNDS DELICIOUS WILL TRY SOMETIME
Large Crimson and Fresh Sweet Pomegranates ripened on my Great Aunt’s Tree in Santiago de Cuba. Great Aunt Eduvigis lived in a Victorian mansion where fruit trees blossomed. She always saved Crimson Sweet Pomegranates when I visited for me to have as a treat.
Will have to give this a try. Sounds good!
I love pomegranates – this is a delicious recipe thank you 🙂

Great recipe, Talin. Thank you for sharing. Pomegranate is not only delicious, it’s one of the richest fruits in antioxidants!
I share your recipe on the Facebook page of my blog. “Age-defying recipes – Recettes anti-âge.”
For Armenians the pomegranate is one of the most recognizable symbols of the country. In Armenian mythology it symbolizes fertility and good fortune. It was a guardian against the evil eye.
This is a traditional ending for Armenian fairy tales:
“Three pomegranates fell down from heaven: One for the story teller, one for the listener, and one for the whole world.”
