Usually I prefer a simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing for my salads, but here’s where I make an exception—pomegranate dressing! If you’ve never had pomegranate molasses, ground sumac, and dried mint before, this is the time to try it.
Pomegranate molasses is dark, thick, and syrupy with a tangy concentrated flavor that gives a jot of acidity and slight sweetness to the dressing. Ground Sumac is a tart, citrusy-fruity, Middle Eastern spice that comes from a reddish-purple berry found on wild bushes. These flavors together with the addition of coolness of the mint are an unforgettable combination.
