The recipes we’re discussing this week are:

Recipe 1 – Christmas Salad (from Alyce Alexandra)

Pomagranate Salad RecipesThis recipe is features on Alyce’s blog and was also kindly contributed to The Holidays Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine. This salad is fresh and delicious. We love it as it uses some really interesting techniques and has some really great textures. This salad is also HUGE so perfect for those big family gatherings!

Recipe 2 – Gourmet Moroccan Salad with Pomegranate (from The 4 Blades)

Bec has created a salad that now has a whole lot of her new favourite things. This salad is a triple threat. First there is the amazing salad, second there is a delightful dressing that you could use on almost any salad and third you could just do the chickpeas as a great roasted chickpea snack.

Here are some cool tips from this podcast…

  • How to de-seed a pomegranate (Thanks Jimmy O!) there are actually 3 different ways including one Thermomix method. Have a listen to the podcast hear us discuss the pro’s and cons of each method.
  • In Alyce’s Christmas Salad, the red onion is soaked in white vinegar before use in the salad. This is a technique used by restaurant to reduce the harsh bite of the onion and it works beautifully.
  • Instead of steaming beetroot in the Thermomix we used pre-cooked beetroot and it tasted excellent. (one less step for those of you who are busy busy busy).
  • Tahini Paste recipe available in the Tea Party Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine
