READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

A great Middle Eastern salad to go with kebabs, and other favorite dishes such as stews, etc. The pomegranate has a lovely tart flavor, and has long been a favorite of mine.

Usually, no hot pepper! Fresh mint leaves can be added, alongside a tablespoon of simac!
