Pomegranate and cucumber salad
This recipe is yummy I got it from vegetarian living magazine. I tried it, husband loves it and my 9 year old too. I’ve made some alteration as I found the onion taste too strong. It’s a 6 serving recipe, it only contains 75 cals per serving and it is rich in anti-oxidants. Prep time: 15 min.
1 small cucumber, peeled and dices
1/2 a small red onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp of chopped mint
pinch of sugar, salt, pepper and olive oil
1) Score the pomegranates’ skin and peel back to reveal the seeds. Pull apart and put the seed in a bowl, avoiding any of the pithy membrane. Mix in the cucumber, onion and mint.
2) Peel the orange skin with a knife up to the pulp. slice the pulp out and cut each pulp pieces in 3. Add to salad with the dripped juice. Season with sugar, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve.
