Our carmen here in Granada, Spain has several fruit trees in our backyard including a granada tree (that’s a pomegranate in
Spanish). We have over 50 ripe ones so today my eight year old and I decided to try a couple new recipes using the granadas as well as the ripe lemons.
We picked the fruit off the tree and opened them up to find beautiful, red seeds, that were sweet and delicious. I sent my older son to the local, organic market with a list in Spanish – plain low fat yogurt and miel (honey in Spanish), we made a delicious dip for our Granny Smith apples.
We used the lemons by combining a teaspoon of olive oil with plain yogurt as well black pepper to make a great salad dressing. We made a salad with arugula, tomatoes, chickpeas and pesto chicken and topped it off with my little man’s salad dressing. Yum! Dinner is served.
