Pomegranate Vinaigrette

"Sweet, tangy dressing. I had never heard of pomegranate molasses but it was well worth the hunt to find this ingredient and found it at an international market. The dressing was part of a Bobby Flay salad recipe using spinach, blue cheese and apples. Nice alternative to Italian dressing and makes a great marinate for chicken."

  1. Excellent fruity, sweet and savory salad dressing with pretty color.
  2. The olive oil was too overpowering for me. Next time I would cut back on the oil, use a mild vegetable oil and add a little water to thin it out.
  3. Very good - four stars. I made this recently just as stated. I had bought some pomegranate molasses and wanted to use it. I found this recipe made a lot and next time will make half a recipe. I thought this was too thick and had to thin it with water. Next time I will add some water up front so it will toss on the salad better. Also, in the future I will start with half as much dijon mustard, I felt it was too spicey for my tastes. Thanks for posting, desertgirlz3, good recipe using pomegranate molasses.


I’m an inspiring home cook. I love cooking, the kitchen is the busiest place in our home. We have many traditions that focus on food and family, like our mandatory Sunday dinner. It’s the one day of the week that the whole family comes together and with kids getting on their own, it’s a special day for me because I get to have all the kids’ home. Of course for the kids it’s a hot, free meal and I always send them off with a care package of leftovers. I think I read cookbooks and magazines more than anything else. I watch anything food related on TV and in our circle of friends, most are chefs. We pretend to get together for football, UFC and what ever events we can think of but secretly it’s to try our new dishes on each other. Good food, friends and family what more could you ask for.
