Cucumber, Feta and Pomegranate Salad

It's that time of year again....time for POMEGRANATES! I love pomegranates which are filled with lots of juicy tart little seeds. They add so much wonderful flavor, crunch and nutrition to any dish. Once you start using'll find an excuse to sprinkle the seeds on anything. :) Here, I've added them to creamy feta and crunchy cucumbers to make a delicious salad that perfect for the holidays or any weeknight dinner.


1 large cucumber, seeded and cubed
1 pomegranate, seeded*
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon raw honey
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste


Place cucumber, pomegranate seeds and cilantro in a large bowl and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey and olive oil. Pour over cucumber mixture and toss gently to coat. Add feta cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste and gently fold into salad. Serve immediately or chill for 15-20 to let flavors to mingle.
