Shrimp And Pomegranate Salad
Posted by Chrystal Baker: The Duo Dishes on Dec 11, 2011 - 8:45:36 PM

BEVERLY HILLSFall's bounty provides a plethora of vegetables and fruits, one of them being the rotund pomegranate. It is sharply sweet and tangy thanks to the numerous seeds hidden inside. They may seem like hard to handle creatures, but it's just a guise. Split the fruit in half across the middle and bang the top of the pomegranate with a spoon. The seeds fall right out. Give the fruit a squeeze, and you have a bit of fresh juice as well. Mix the seeds with salty sweet shrimp, crunchy cucumbers and onion and creamy avocado and sour cream. It's the perfect salad.
