1/2 Photos of Spinach and Pear Salad With Pomegranate Dressing
Peachie Keene's Note:
If you've never cut open a pomegranate, you might be in for a messy surprise. The best way to get the seeds out with out staining your clothes and counter is to cut the fruit in half, and then submerge it in a bowl of water. Then you can use your fingers to remove the white pith, releasing the juicy seeds. Once you've freed all the pomegranate seeds, pour the contents of the bowl into a colander and transfer the seeds to a paper towel to dry. If you don't have white balsamic vinegar, you can use the regular kind. -- from the book Feed the Belly.
