USING POMEGRANATE SEEDS IS A SPECIAL WAY to dress up a variety of dishes. Combining greens with this citrus dressing, you simply can’t go wrong, and the addition of pomegranate seeds on top is like icing on the cake.


2 bunches greens (try bok choy, kale or collard greens)
1 bunch watercress
Seeds from 1⁄2 large pomegranate


Juice of 1 orange (about 1⁄4 cup)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1⁄2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon tamari
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


In small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients.

Prepare greens by trimming and discarding dried ends. Cut leaves into bite-size pieces. Keeping watercress aside, place all other greens in large sauté pan. Add citrus dressing and sauté 2 minutes or until bright green and tender. Fold in watercress and cook 1 more minute. Remove from heat and serve topped with pomegranate seeds.

    A friend sent me one of your receipes and I need to know what is Mirin? and where to purchase it. I am anxious to start eating clean.

    Hi Jean,

    Mirin is a natural white cooking wine made from rice, and can be found at most health food stores. Check the label to make sure it does not have added sugar or preservatives. If you have a white wine on hand, I’m sure it will work just fine! Enjoy!

    I made the Pomegranate dressing for a dinner party and impressed one of my chef friends. He had to have the recipe and said it was his new favorite.
    Thanks! I have LOVED cooking clean and eating it is even better.

    Oh….my…gosh, it sounds delicious and just in time for shaking up our salad routine. We just talked about this last night. Gonna try the Strawberry kanten as well. We have kanten here in Hawaii, but never different flavors. Mmm.

    Enjoy, Jeri! We’re experiencing a return to cold temperatures back in the northeast. So instead of cool and refreshing Kanten, we’re making baked stuffed apples!
