A few months ago, I saw a recipe in a cooking magazine for a Waldorf salad that contained cooked steel cut oatmeal. I saved the recipe somewhere, but never got around to trying it. While searching for a recipe for the pomegranates this week, I came across this recipe for a bulgur salad on 101 Cookbooks. I decided to use the oats instead. The hardest part of this recipe is getting the seeds out of the pomegranate. I used these instructions for seeding the pomegranate, and these for juicing the pomegranate.
We got pomegranates in our box this week, a fruit I would NEVER have bought. That is the beauty of the CSA box-getting us to try produce we wouldn’t have otherwise considered. I was looking for something to do with the beet greens, and came across this recipe from yummly.com for Swiss chard, and thought I would just substitute the beet greens. Since I was substituting, I decided to use some of the pomegranate seeds instead of the raisins. I served this with pork chops, and my guests really liked it! I hope you will, too.
