Pomegranate and Quinoa Salad

I created the following recipe for Pomegranate Quinoa Salad after a friend gave me a bunch of pomegranates. Christina sent me a message telling me to come pick pomegranates off of her tree. If you ask anyone that really knows me, what my favorite things are, they should name some of the following: Jesus, cooking, rain, Mr. Bean, coffee, working out, and picking fresh fruit!

As a matter of fact, many years ago, I actually dug up a friend’s fig tree right out of her yard, during her house-warming party. In my defense, she didn’t even know what it was, and suggested that I take it. Thinking back, it occurs to me that maybe she didn’t think I would go through with it, but shamelessly, I dug it up and brought it home. I planted in my back yard, where it’s been thriving ever since!

Getting back to the pomegranates, I wasted no time in heading over to my friend, Christina’s, house. I picked pomegranates to my heart’s content! Many had already burst open, as a result of over-ripening. As I admired the beautiful, shiny red seeds, it occurred to me that I needed to find some pomegranate recipes. It was then that I came up with this recipe. I have fallen in love with this recipe, and believe you will too!
