This recipe for pomegranate vinaigrette is great as a salad dressing or when drizzled over shrimp or salmon as an appetizer or main course salad. Fresh or bottled pomegranate juice will work but fresh is best because you will have the seeds for garnish.

Eastern Europeans developed a fondness for pomegranate from their Middle Eastern and Mediterranean neighbors and they are grown in some parts of Eastern Europe.
