Pomegranate Season

With all the upheaval at our house the past few months, some things have slipped through the cracks ... like feeding the Pomegranates.  Some things just fell to the bottom of the priority list.  Even though the fruit is smaller this year and the husks are lighter in color, the good news is the flavor is excellent and they are loaded with juice! Scroll to the end of today's post to check out one of
my favorite salads.

I pulled out my vintage California Hand Prints "Pomegranate" tablecloth and set a tribute to this aspect of the Fall harvest here in California. The green Depression Glass is vintage too, while all other elements are contemporary.

I love this salad and look how great it looks in a black Fiesta flat soup bowl.

Pomegranate Salad
1 (10 ounce) bag baby spinach leaves, rinsed and drained (or your favorite greens)
1/4 cup red onion, sliced very thin
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1/4 cup alfalfa sprouts (optional)
1 pomegranate, peeled and seeds separated
4 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette (I add Pomegranate juice)

A couple of videos to help you seed your Pomegranates:

  4. Hi Candy, I envy you California ladies and your fruit trees. I love the tablecloth and the display behind the table is beautiful. I make this same salad but I have to get my Pomgranates from the grocery store. Thanks for sharing another pretty table at the Open House Party.

  5. The glassware really brightens this tablescape. Everything is so fresh and charming.

  6. Candy, how wonderful to have your own pomegranate tree. I like to use the pomegranate seeds on salads. Adds a wonderful touch!

  8. Hi Candy. Your tablescape is a lovely tribute to the healthy and delicious fruit. Nature did a lovely job all on its own!

  10. Very pretty! Your promegranates look so good. We have a tree too but the fruits are really sour...Christine

  11. The polka-dot glasses are so cute. I love how you mixed them with the green ones.

  12. This is just a beautiful tablesetting! Your linens always look so crisp. Your color combinations are stunning! Thank you for the recipe too!

  13. Stunning!!


  14. The pomegranate salad looks wonderful in your beautiful and colorful tablescape. Love yor tabletoppers. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Hugs, FBBY

  15. Another awesome vintage tablecloth! Nice. I will try the pomegranate salad sometime soon. Great use of different greens, especially glasses. Thanks for posting another lovely design. ~CJ

  16. Candy, this is sooo pretty! Love your fiesta ware and your lovely vintage glassware. My son is getting married next May and his sweet bride has chosen Fiestaware for her everyday. I sent her a link to your blog several months ago so she could see your beautiful collection.

  17. How beautiful -- I will have to try the pomegranate salad -- It's as lovely as your table....well almost.

  18. I love this table...the colors are gorgeous and it's so much fun to see all of your tablecloths each week. Your color sense is just stunning!

  19. How wonderful to have pomegranates at your finger tips! Your tablescape is lovely from the table covering on up. The napkin rings are perfect and I like the flatware, too. Your salad looks so refreshing and the recipe sounds so good. I hope to give this a try soon!

  20. Love your Pom theme! That sald looks really good too. How do you get your vintage tablecloths to look like they are brand new? Starch? I find ones in thrift stores and when I inspect them they always seem to have a spot or yellowing. Is that usually permanent?

  21. I'm just now catching up on blogs... this one made me smile a lot. The color combo is just perfect, the salad looks yummy, and I really love this mix of glassware. I wish Becky could see this tablescape---how she loved that Pom cloth!


Thank you for your lovely comments.
