Each week over at the Food Bloggers of Canada they do a round up of recipes.  It is pretty much always seasonally inspired and can be anything from healthy school lunches to decadent deserts.  I love participating and whenever it suits, I submit a recipe to go along with the theme.

Quite often, I already have something on my blog that goes with the theme and I just submit what is ready.  However, sometimes, I have nothing suitable.  Or it suits the theme but the recipe is old and the photos are a we bit on the “yuck” side of things. So, I find myself making little weekly challenges to adhere to whatever theme or ingredient they are looking for.

Which bring me to this week’s ingredient, pomegranate.

Of all the recipes on this little blog, there is only one pomegranate recipe.  One very lonely recipe. It is Blue Cheese and Pomegranate Cups.  I only made them once ever.  Well twice really.  Once as a trial to see if they would pass the test for my Christmas party and the second time to hit the party table a week later.  Those little cups were all eaten at the party so they must have been a hit.  Somehow, I haven’t gotten around to making them since.  Too many other delicious things to try.  So much food, so little time.

How To Open A pomegranate

Basically you cut the top off the pomegranate and then find the white areas that section off the seeds.  You cut out the sections.  Easy!  Go look at the video though, it will make far more sense than my makeshift explanation. 

Here is a link to one of the videos I stumbled upon on how to do it correctly.  I did it this way after I found the video and found it much easier.

This salad can be put together up to a few hours before serving and still it will be fresh.  Just remember not to add the dressing until just before serving.

This Pomegranate and Citrus Salad could be served with any holiday inspired table, a brunch or just to brighten up a gloomy day!
