Pomegranates have been cherished for their exquisite beauty, flavor, color, and health benefits for centuries. They are high in vitamin C and potassium, a great source of fiber and are low in calories. Pomegranate juice is high in three different types of polyphenols, a potent form of antioxidants. The three types - tannins, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid - are present in many fruits, but fresh pomegranate juice contains particularly high amounts of all three. This dressing is great for salads and fruit as well.
1 cup pomegranate juice (either juice your own or try to find an unsweetened natural version in your local health store)
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Tarragon
1 teaspoon lemon thyme
- Combine ingredients in a container with a tight lid and shake vigorously.
