Pomegranate Vinaigrette Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2/3 cup


1 cup fresh or bottled pomegranate juice*
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon good-quality aged Balsamic Vinegar
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

* Bottled Pomegranate Juice:  Be sure you’re buying 100% pomegranate juice, as some juices advertised as pomegranate juice are a blend of apple or grape juices with a small percentage of the more expensive pomegranate juice.  There are many brands that are pure pomegranate juice.



In a small stainless steel or non-reactive saucepan over high heat, boil the pomegranate juice until reduced to 1/3 cup, approximately 9 or 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.

While still warm, stir in the sugar, salt, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil; set aside to cool.

Yields approximately 2/3 cup vinaigrette.
