This fruity, creamy dressing will not only make your salad taste great, it will make it more nutritious. Berries and pomegranate juice are rich in antioxidants and the healthy fat in nuts and seeds increases nutrient absorption.

Made this with Dr. F's Pomegranate vinegar and it had a strong pom taste! Very nice change from the Blueberry Dressing recipe!

This makes an awful lot of dressing. How do you store the leftovers? I tried putting it in the fridge however it became very thick and not at all like dressing. Any tips?

Add a bit or pomegranate juice or fruit flavored vinegar, if stirring by itself leaves the dressing too thick.

I love this dressing. I use raspberry vinegar and have a few more cashews than pumpkin seeds. I do agree with Corina that it is quite thick when stored in the fridge but all I do is give it a stir then spoon it onto my salad and mix it in. Just delicious!

I agree - you just need to thoroughly stir it after storage in the frig and it returns to it's normal consistency.

I love this dressing! It's a staple. I have also substituted black raspberries and Marionberries...all make a great dressing. Just process a little longer in a VitaMix until all traces of blackberry seeds are decimated.

I freeze extra. I keep my refrigerated dressing in a "shaker" so it gets to the right consistency before pouring. Or I stir and spoon it out of a container.

one of my favorite go-to dressings. I make it with different kinds of flavored vinegars, depending on what I have in the pantry. Very delicious

I'm new to this site (and this way of eating). This is the first dressing recipe we have tried on this site. It is awesome! I hope some of the other recipes I'm going to try can live up to this one!

Delicious!!! Did substitute grape juice for the Pomegranate, but will try with the pomegranate also.

Mine got a little gelatinous. Is that what others mean by thick? Some of the other balsamic dressings have a little mustard in them which perhaps help emulsify the dressing somewhat.

Store extra in the freezer in a PBA free ice cube tray. Then take out what you need, thaw in a bowl set over another bowl of hot water. Whisk when thawed to remove any lumps.

What size pie pan do you use for this recipe?

The greatest dressing.  I used pine nuts and chia seeds because those are ones that I can tolerate.  This is so good that you could eat it with a spoon.  I agree that adding mustard to it would add a nice tartness

I was really excited to try this recipe....but I thought it was terrible.  Maybe that is because I tried it in week 1 of my ETL journey...but I couldn't eat my salad because it was so gross. Maybe my tastes will change after eating more ETL foods and I will like it. But as of now, I couldn't even choke it down. Definitely not a beginner dressing if you are used to SAD foods.

I hope it gets better for you.  Once you get used to REAL food, you'll enjoy it and think of how much healthier you'll be.

Delicious dressing! I used frozen blueberries, which made the dressing cold and refreshing. I also used pomegranite vinegar. Excellent.

What salad ingredients did you use when you made this dressing?  I am in an 'end of summer salad rut' and I would appreciate your suggestions!  Thank you!

I noticed that apple pieces in the salad go very well with this dressing and give it depth.
