Directions

  • STEP ONE
    In a small bowl, whisk together pomegranate juice,
    lemon zest and juice, and olive oil. Salt and pepper to
    taste. Add more oil if needed. Set aside.

  • STEP TWO
    In a large bowl, toss together quinoa, walnuts,
    parsley, green onion, pomegranate arils, and dried
    cranberries. Drizzle on vinaigrette to taste, and toss
    until well-coated. We used all of the dressing, but
    always err on the side of caution and pour slowly!
    Salt and pepper to taste.

  • STEP THREE
    Serve immediately. This salad keeps in the fridge for
    1-2 days.
