Walnut Oil Vinaigrette
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Common in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking, pomegranate molasses is a sweet-yet-tart sauce made from reduced pomegranate juice. Combined with walnut oil, it makes a zesty dressing, perfect for sweet greens like Bibb lettuce and sugar snap peas. Toasted walnuts are a natural topping.

Ingredients
Prep: 5 minutes | Total Time: 5 minutes
  • 1 tablespoon
    red-wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons
    pomegranate molasses, (see Ingredient note) or frozen cranberry juice concentrate
  • 1/8 teaspoon
    salt, or to taste
  •  
    Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup
    walnut oil, or extra-virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Whisk vinegar, pomegranate molasses (or cranberry juice concentrate), salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in oil.

 

Tip

Ingredient Note: Pomegranate molasses lends a bright, tangy flavor to many Middle Eastern and Persian dishes. (Do not confuse it with grenadine syrup, which is very sweet and contains little or no pomegranate juice.) Bottled molasses is sold in Middle Eastern markets and some large supermarkets.
