salad in white bowl with pomegranate salad dressing in small white bowl

Pomegranate Molasses Salad Dressing

A simple vinaigrette combining the familiar balsamic vinegar with the tangy syrupy pomegranate molasses. Easily modified to your own tastes or menu – add fresh or dried herbs, change the vinegar, or use it exactly as is. Originally served on a fig and manchego green salad, it would be ideal for so many salads throughout the year.
