Pomegranate balsamic vinegar makes a great salad dressing, but it can be used in just about any way you like. What was once an exotic cooking ingredient can now be made easily at home. Real pomegranate juice is used to make the vinegar and it can be found at well-stocked supermarkets and local health food stores. This recipe yields approximately ¾ cup of pomegranate balsamic vinegar.
Things You'll Need
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- Wire whisk
- 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp. mustard powder
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- Jar or bowl with lid
Combine ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil with ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar in a medium sized mixing bowl. Whisk until the two ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Add ¼ cup of pomegranate juice to the mixing bowl, and whisk until it is thoroughly combined. Use real pomegranate juice with no sugar added, not a juice cocktail.
Add ½ tsp. of kosher salt, 1/8 tsp. of ground black pepper, ¼ tsp. of garlic powder and 1/8 tsp. of mustard powder, if desired. Whisk again until it is combined.
Transfer the pomegranate balsamic vinegar to a jar or bowl with a lid. Label with the contents. Store in the refrigerator for up to ten days before discarding.
