1 Spring Onion (thinly sliced)
1/2 Cup Coriander (roughly chopped)
2 Oranges (thinly sliced into wedges)
1 Pomegranate (seeds only)
1 Lime (1/2 teaspoon zest & juice of whole lime)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

Preparation:     15-20 minutes
Serves:    4

IMG_5901aIn a bowl place the carrots, Lebanese cucumber, spring onion, coriander, sliced orange wedges, Pomegranate seeds, lime juice and lime zest, drizzle a generous amount of Olive Oil, salt and pepper and mix well to combine.

Cook’s Tips

To remove the Pomegranate seeds easily.  Cut the Pomegranate in half, squeeze over the bowl and gently open the Pomegranate half as if you are opening petals on a flower.  The seeds will easily be removed.  Repeat this for the other half.  Keep the juice from the Pomegranate and mix it into the salad.  If the white membrane falls into the salad, just remove it and discard as it is quite bitter.

  1. Perfect salad to refresh ourselves, especially summer is coming soon. I love oranges so much and I’m sure this salad would taste extra good when using a cold juicy orange for the salad. Beautiful recipe Milanka! 😉
