At Christmas I always find myself reaching for one of Nigella Lawson’s great cookbooks. This year is no exception, and I make no apologies for reproducing this fantastic recipe from Nigella Christmas. First, it is deceptively delicious, and second it is the perfect accompaniment to the Beef Tagine I cooked a couple of days ago. And just look at those colours!
The ingredients might sound weird, but what you end up with is a sweet and sour flavoured salad which doesn’t taste onioney.
This has got to be worth a try, hasn’t it?
Recipe: Pomegranate, Onion and Coriander Salad
This is a super sweet and sour flavoured salad that works surprisingly well at Christmas time.
- 2 red onions.
- Juice of 2 limes
- Juice of 1 pomegranate
- Seeds of 1 pomegranate
- Finely slice the onions.
- Cover with the juice of the limes and pomegranate, leave for 30 minutes then drain the juice and dispose the juice (this is what takes away the onion flavour).
- Add the pomegranate seeds and a handful of chopped coriander and you’re done!
Preparation time: 40 minute(s)
