I have been MIA from my blog and from the kitchen. I had some surgery and I am just barely getting back in the kitchen. I was kind of ecstatic the day I made chicken tacos (from chicken that had been precooked and frozen). It was a milestone in my recovery.
I am still not up to spending more than about 15 minutes prepping in the kitchen. I get really tired really fast. But today I found some of my favorite seasonal items laying around the kitchen and I put together this simple salad that felt just a little gourmet. It's not everyday you get to eat these gorgeous red jewels.
Pomegranate season is here! Today I am sharing a simple salad that had my daughter begging me to make her one. It is more of an idea Later this week, when I am ready to spend more time in the kitchenI will be whipping up some pomegranate syrup from the pomegranate juice I bought from a regional grower. I love pomegranates.
Just because it's salad doesn't mean it has to be boring.
