Herbed Potato and Pomegranate Salad

Herbed Potato and Pomegranate Salad

My first blog post of the year. Can’t believe it’s 2015! Hope it started well for all of you, guys. We celebrated the arrival of the New Year with lots of delicious food, drinks, karaoke songs, laughter—with our family friends. A total of 14 families gathered at a friend’s house and every single family brought at least two kinds of foods. Imagine the delicious spread on the table. It turned me into a glutton for the day. Luckily, the following day I chose to stick with my resolution to eat in moderation and to go back to exercising. Most of us at the party had a similar resolution. I wish us all good luck.

Herbed Potato and Pomegranate Salad

Anyway. I got carried away. Back to the New Year’s Eve table. My contribution to the party was this delicious potato salad (plus another salad I will tell you about in the next post) speckled with fresh herbs and fresh, juicy pomegranate arils. As the author of “Pomegranates and Saffron,” I felt the “pressure” to make something with pomegranates and so I did. Turned out great! Dressed with nothing more than olive oil and lemon juice. How do you like the idea? It got instantly party-approved. While pomegranate season is still around, try making this salad. Instant approval of all taste-testers guaranteed. Enjoy!

    Blackberry Roulade
    What do you say we make something with blackberries today? Like blackberry roulade.  I’ll confess I made it in June when the berry season was ripe, right before our trip to China, but the times have been hectic ever since and I procrastinated. I do hope you can still find berries where you live. We are  lucky in Los Angles....
