Homemade Pomegranate Vinaigrette — A quick and easy salad dressing recipe made with pomegranate juice, cider vinegar, and olive oil. So much better than store-bought!

You’d think in the dead of winter, buried in snow, blankets, and hot tea that I would be sick of salads. LOL.
Does peanut butter get sick of jelly? Does mac think cheese should see other people? Salad and I made our vows a long time ago, and I take those to heart. ‘Til death do us part, through winter and in health. I do.
It’s just that I up the antioxidant oomph in the months I question my Northeast existence. I’ll be the first to tell you I am AWFUL about making my own salad dressings. Usually a squirt of Dijon, or a dump (official measurement term) of salsa is as far as I get.
Some juice, oil, and vinegar though…I have no excuse not to make this more often.
I had no idea that POM Wonderful whole-presses TWO whole pomegranates, seeds, skins, and all in each 8 ounce bottle. That’s a whole lotta antioxidant powah. Added with some leafy greens and healthy fats, I laugh in the face of influenza.
- 1 cup POM Wonderful 100% pomegranate juice
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients together thoroughly.
- Transfer to a liquid measuring cup, and pour into reusable bottle with lid.
- Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
- Let thaw on counter for 10 minutes before using to allow oil to come up to room temperature, and liquid form.
