How to get the seeds from the pomegranate fruit
Whole pomegranates can be kept at room temperature, out of direct sunlight for several days. Refrigerated in a plastic bag, they can keep for a few months. Pomegranate seeds can be refrigerated for three days. You could also freeze the seeds in a single layer, so they won’t come to one another, and this will keep for several months
Pomegranate Vinaigrette dressed the salad and we sprinkled the arils on top.
1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
1/3 cup olive oil
5 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
Bring pomegranate juice to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 cup.
Transfer to a small bowl. Cool completely (about 30 minutes). Whisk in olive oil, honey, vinegar, mustard, pepper, and salt.
