Tomato and Walnut Salad with Pomegranate Molasses Dressing

Tomato and Walnut Salad with Pomegranate Molasses Dressing

With some itsy bitsy tomatoes in hand, looking more like jelly beans than tomatoes, we made a Tomato and Walnut Salad with Pomegranate Molasses Dressing. A perfect choice, as we had made our own Pomegranate Molasses, and had whole walnuts sitting on the kitchen bench. You can of course, purchase pomegranate molasses – I find the Middle Eastern shops have the best ones.

It was Lucy’s recipe, from Nourish Me, that we went to for inspiration. It’s a pretty easy salad – take some juicy tomatoes, and make an interesting dressing with garlic, cinnamon and pomegranate molasses. Pretty good, as all of Lucy’s recipes are.

Similar recipes include Quick Tomato Salad with Mustardy Mayo, Tomato Salad with Balsamic and Marjoram, and Tomato and Pomegranate Salad.

Tomato and Walnut Salad with Pomegranate Molasses Dressing

Chop tomatoes – juicy ones with loads of flavour – into chunks. If you are using tiny tomatoes, just halve them.. Mix them in a bowl with roughly broken walnut halves.

Make a dressing using a crushed half clove of garlic, a pinch of ground cinnamon, 1 Tblspn of pomegranate molasses, 0.5 Tblspn of hot water and 2 Tblspn of extra virgin olive oil. Season, whisk, taste and adjust seasoning if required. Drizzle generously over the tomatoes; toss over and over.

Let it sit for a while for the flavours to infuse. Gorgeous.

Add some finely chopped parsley or coriander just before serving, if you care to.

Just because I had them, I added some sliced cumquats this time.

  1. What beautiful tomatoes you have!

    I’ve made and loved this recipe too, though I’ve only used plainer tomato varieties in it so far.
