Tips for mixing the vinaigrette

Vinaigrettes can be make in advance and stored in the fridge. Simply add the ingredients to a mason jars with the lid on and give it a good shake. Shake until the oil and liquids have some how combined. Another option is to just put it in the blender. Or, and my personal favourite, is to whisk it together a mini whisk. It’s small and easy to clean.

How to deseed a pomegranate?

Deseeding a pomegranate can seem like a complicated task but it certainly is not. However, if done incorrectly, you could end up with juice squirting in all directions leaving red stains everywhere! We don’t want that!

  • Slice into the skin of the bottom edge of the pomegranate. Do not cut through it, to avoid damaging the seeds.
  • Carefully pull it off. Slice in 4 into the skin along the veins / white skin on the inside. Again, avoid cutting into it.
  • Gently tear it apart.
  • Take one piece, hold it in one hand with the cut side over a large bowl.
  • Give it a slight squeeze to loosen the seeds lightly.
  • Tap the pomegranate with a wooden spoon until the seeds falls into the bowl.
  • Discard any white flesh that fell into the bowl.
