This is a very flexible recipe. The items and amounts can be adjusted to what you have on hand or what you want to try. Try other grains like quinoa, other veggies or fruit. I am sure this would taste great adding a bit of feta cheese, too!
Mix all of the above in a large bowl.
Combine the following
dressing ingredients, mix well, add to the salad, and mix well.
Add a little salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste and mix well.
Just before serving, stir salad again to distribute the dressing, place about 1 cup onto a plate (optional - lined with whole romaine lettuce leaves) and sprinkle each salad with a small handful of pomegranate seeds (see Cook’s note below).
note – here is how I have finally ended up getting seeds
out of a pomegranate without spraying my kitchen and me with juice!
Cut a whole pomegranate in half on a small flexible cutting board so
that any juice resulting from that cut can be easily drained into the
dressing. Fill a medium sized bowl with water and place in your sink.
Place one of the pomegranate halves into the bowl beneath the water.
With your fingers, carefully detach the seeds from the inner white
membranes of the fruit. Let the seeds sink to the bottom of the bowl.
The membrane pieces will float. When done, scoop off the membrane pieces,
drain the water, and put the seeds in a small covered container to
be kept in the refrigerator until ready to put on the salad. I confess
that I do drink some of the water so to not waste those antioxidants.
I tried putting the water in our dog’s water bowl – but
that was not accepted!
In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.
I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes". I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book. I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.
If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me. If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe. If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
