In this memorable salad from Ottolenghi and Tamimi’s Jerusalem, roasted Cauliflower, Celery and Hazelnuts are combined with Pomegranate, fresh Parsley, and warming spices. A sweet-tart vinaigrette finishes it off.
When we roast cauliflower, we make a whole lot, often 2 – 3 trays, and it is used for Cauliflower Soup, Crispy Cauliflower with Tahini Yoghurt Dressing, and this salad. Roasted cauliflower is one of the best ways to use this gorgeous winter vegetable.

This dish of beautiful fresh buffalo mozzarella balls has saved me many a time, late at night, tired from a long day, collapsed in front of the television. Mozzarella balls are torn apart, tomatoes, cukes and herbs added, and pomegranate molasses drizzled over.
Tearing the fresh Mozzarella adds great texture, great mouth-feel, and a much more interesting look than slicing. Never slice the large balls unless absolutely necessary.

The cheery colour of Pomegranate Vinegar brightens any Winter Salad Dressing
When pomegranates are plentiful in late autumn and early winter, I love to make pomegranate honey for the winter, pomegranate molasses and pomegranate vinegar. The vinegar is great in salad dressings or over roasted vegetables, and the colour is cheery in the midst of winter.

A honey that attracts attention
A delicious and healthy combination of pomegranate and honey, fabulous to eat or cook with, and winter-healthy as well.
Pomegranate Honey is a mixture of honey and the juice of pomegranate. It is healthy, and we recommend a teaspoon a day during the cold winter months. Extracting the juice can take time, but if you have a cold pressed juicer, it is really easy. You can read more about how to extract pomegranate juice here. By the way, I am not receiving any compensation for linking to this juicer, it is for information purposes only.

A salad comes together from almost nothing
The other morning, while making coffee and getting a quick breakfast ready, I got my lunch prep underway. In no time there was a small handful of burghul (Cracked Wheat) soaking in hot water. The last of some green olives, halved. Hazlenuts quickly toasted. Some left over slivered almonds. Onions soaking in red wine vinegar. The last of a jar of kimchi.
Burghul forms the basis of great, inspired salads made from left overs in the kitchen. You can use this recipe as a guide, and use what you have in your fridge and on your Kitchen Bench.
Are you looking for other Burghul dishes? We have some coming soon, so check back here later.

And to celebrate the arrival of Autumn and it’s change in colours, Ottolenghi has this cheery bright red salad that combines the sweetness of the tomatoes with the sour-sweetness of the pomegranates.

The most incredible salad
In the past it has been difficult to get pomegranates that were as tasty as those in Tamil Nadu and Kerala in India. There, they are so flavoursome, sweet, served by the bowlful for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here, early in the season, there were only wild pomegranates in the shop. Small, tart, hard, inedible. It was only later, much much later, some became available that approach the deliciousness of the fruit of India.

In this Indian Summer weather, some dried tomatoes with pomegranate molasses / syrup, seems perfect, especially when eaten with thick thick yoghurt. Also perfect but a little different are dried tomatoes with sumac. Drying tomatoes concentrates the sugars, and this makes them a perfect foil for pomegranate or sumac.
Why not make your own Pomegranate Molasses? Also make some Pomegranate Honey – it keeps you healthy all through winter. This is how you extract the Pomegranate Juice.
Or try Pomegranate Salsa, Tomato and Pomegranate Salad, and Pomegranate and Banana Salad.

Red jelly from green crab apples.
I have access to a lovely tree of green crabapples and in late Autumn, with its final lot of green fruits clinging doggedly to the tree, many more lie below nestled in the autumn leaves. It took me back to more rustic times, to days of jam making in my Grandmother’s kitchen, to stirring jam in large preserving pans with huge wooden sticks.

Celebrating the Pomegranate.
On one trip to Kerala in India, the hotel had the sweetest and most succulent pomegranates at each meal. They were so unlike anything that we could get at home that I ate more that I care to mention.
In Kerala, the pomegranates were beautiful. The salads and side serves featuring the bright red globules were wonderful. For many years our local pomegranates were tough and bitter. Fortunately times have change and good pomegranates are more widely available.
