Sometimes we over-indulge in decadent food and end up feeling heavy and bloated. This salad is the remedy. Colorful, delicious, and bursting in nutrients and vitality, it is the ultimate winter de-toxifying salad.
Beetroot, carrot, and pomegranate are all autumnal/winter fruits and vegetables. A dressing of balsamic vinegar and finely chopped onion make you forget this is a healthy dish, and render it one to be fully enjoyed. Adapted from here.
1 small red onion, diced small
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar (or fresh lemon juice)
2 Tbsp pomegranate molasses
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 large beet, scrubbed and shredded
2 medium carrots, scrubbed and shredded
1 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup pomegranate arils
1/4 cup unsalted toasted pumpkin seeds
Stir together all ingredients for the dressing and set aside so the flavors can blend while you prep the salad.
Stir the beet, carrot, and parsley into the dressing, and then transfer to a shallow bowl.
Sprinkle the pomegranate arils and pumpkin seeds on top.
