another way to use delicious pomegranates

Top Review by evelynathens

Very, very pretty dish with a nice, bright flavour. The pomegranate seeds looked like rubies interspersed with all the other ingredients, and was very pretty in combo with the oranges. I have a sneaking suspicion that basil may taste even better than parsley as the 'green' in the salad. I think a long-grain rice may also better than the basmati - it was a bit too delicate to hold up as a 'salad' rice - I wanted something with a little more 'bite' to it. I'd definitely have this out for a buffet for the colours alone!
