Pomango Dressing


Last week, I received a case of pomegranate juice from the awesome people at POM Wonderful. I love pomegranates and its mild tart flavor. I've had this product before when I used to buy the huge bottles from Whole Foods. So when they contacted me, I immediately accepted. As soon as I received the case in the mail, I drank two of the bottles in two days. I had to control myself from drinking anymore because I have plans for this delicious juice.



In case you were wondering, the juice is also healthy for you. Full of anti-oxidants and full of vitamin C & E. It's also great for your cardiovascular system. Small food fact: Pomegranates are one of mankind's earliest cultivated fruits. So if it's been around this long, you know it got to be good. I remember making my own pom juice once. It a bit labor intensive with trying to get all the seedlings out from their shell. Luckily, I don't have to do that anymore.

Of course, the first thing I make with it is a salad dressing. A pomegranate and mango dressing. Since having those broiled baby back ribs filled me up the other day, I needed something relatively light to counter balance all that meaty goodness. A nice refreshing salad was in order. Besides, it was a hot day and I didn't feel like eating anything heavy.

It's not chunky as I made this in the food processor, so it had a smooth consistency to it. Not too fruity and a lovely tiny tang from some dijon mustard.

This makes roughly 1 1/2 c of dressing.



Pomango Dressing

1 ripe medium mango
6 Tbsp Pomegranate Juice (POM Wonderful)
3 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
salt
pepper

Note: You may use a food processor, blender, or an emersion blender

Mash the mango into an liquid state.

Blend in the pomegranate juice, vinegar, olive oil and dijon mustard until smooth. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Add more, if needed.

Drizzle over your favorite mix of greens.

Really creative dressing. I tend to drink most of the pomegranate juice before I use it for anything, too.

Reeni♥ said...

This looks delicious! Great idea to use mango with it - nice and smooth to balance out some of the tart.

Donna-FFW said...

Great idea for the salad dressing, love the dijon and rice wine with the POM, must be tasty. Name is terrific!

Jen @ MyKitchenAddiction.com said...

Looks wonderful! I need to make my own salad dressings more often. Perhaps that would encourage me to eat salad more often!

girlichef said...

This sounds great...and it made me laugh, cuz I totally had to control myself w/ the POM, too!! Had to use it in at least one recipe, tee hee!

teresa said...

I even love the name, pomango, it's fun to say, just like I imagine this salad is fun to eat. Delicious!

Jenn said...

Hummingbird: It's just too good not to drink right away.

Reeni: it's got a nice milk fruity flavor too.

Donna: Thanks. It is tasty.

Jen: It does help with eating more salads.

Girlichef: I'm so tempted right now to drink another bottle.

Oh for a case of POM..... (sigh)

Teanna said...

Woah!!! Pomegranate and mango dressing?! That is AWESOME! I have to try that!

Fearless Kitchen said...

Pomegranate and mango dressing? Sounds grand!

5 Star Foodie said...

I'm loving the concept of pomango dressing! Bookmarking for my daughter to read (she loves pom juice and mango is her favorite fruit!)

TavoLini said...

That sounds excellent!! We just happen to have a bit of pomegranate juice left, I think ours is mixed with blueberry. Would probably still be good, though...

Jenn said...

eatlivetravelwrite: I felt the same way when others got theirs.

Teanna: You'll like it.

Fearless Kitchen: Thanks.

5 Star: You'll daughter will definitely love this.

TavoLini: Adding blueberry to the mix wouldn't hurt. I think it'll still be great.

Daily Spud said...

Love the name pomango! Definitely interested to try the mango/pomegranate combination in a dressing.

Jenn said...

Daily Spud: Give it try. ;-)

Tangled Noodle said...

Delicious combo of sweet and tart! POM Wonderful is a great product - when I rec'd some, most were guzzled down but I was able to reserve 2 bottles to make a baste for an Easter ham and a salad dressing, too!

Jenn said...

Tangled Noodle: Oooo...you just gave me another idea.
