Pomegranate Summer Salad
Here, pomegranate is the star in a creamy salad dressing that's both sweet and tart.
This dish falls under what Chef Robby Goco of Cyma and Charlie's Grind and Grill calls "progressive Greek"-using ingredients that are typically found in Greek cooking, but in fresh, modern ways. Here, pomegranate (experiencing a surge in popularity because of its high antioxidant content) is the star in a creamy salad dressing that's both sweet and tart. Nuts, mushrooms, and fried cheese add a salty, umami element. Want to know another secret to cooking great food? Combine textures too, Goco advises. The overall mouthfeel of the dish is just as important as the taste.
