This Valentine’s Day, skip the busy restaurants and dine in! Valentine’s Day recipes make it easy to replicate those romantic dinner recipes from fancy restaurants. Start your meal with this delicious salad recipe!
Pomegranate reminds me of my childhood! My dad used to buy them and peel them for us! Peeling them can be quite messy and none of us offered to help! I did not want to get my hands dirty but I loved eating them! My parents served them without any seasoning but as I am a sweet tooth, I added some sugar or orange flower syrup! Delicious!
Did you know that pomegranate has quite the romantic history? In ancient Greek lore, it’s the fruit that Persephone ate that tied her to the underworld for 6 months each year. In Western lore, it is said that a unicorn was tied to a pomegranate tree. The rich romantic history of this fruit makes it perfect for Valentine’s Day recipes!
Since Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, I thought that pomegranate would make a nice twist to any easy romantic dinner recipes for this special occasion! This beautiful fruit will add a nice color to any salad recipe as well as crunch! You can still eat them bare too!
