Honeyed Pomegranate Citrus Vinaigrette and a Giveaway Winner

 
Has any of you noticed the Pomegranates in the grocery store lately? They are quite large and have a beautiful deep red color.
 
And they are delicious!!
 
The heavier menu over Thanksgiving had me wishing for something light and refreshing. I had two Poms in the fridge so I decided to experiment with them. I was quite pleased with the flavor that came out of it!! The seeds are also a refreshing addition to a salad. Little bursts of flavor in every bite! :)
 
Taste bud happiness!
 
¾ cup Pomegranate Juice
(approx. 10 oz. seeds)
1½ Tablespoons Orange Juice
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1½ Tablespoons White Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Honey
Orange Zest, for garnish,
optional
 
Blend the seeds just enough to break them all open. Push through a sieve and discard the pulp. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well with a wire whisk. Serve over Artisan Lettuce (my favorite!), Feta Cheese, Orange Glazed sliced Almonds, Pomegranate Seeds, Avocado slices, and Onion for a delightful, and refreshing salad.
 
And yes, it's good any time of the day, even for breakfast! :)
