“Shepherd’s Salad with Pomegranate Dressing“
Salads are my favorite foods! It is prepared many different ways and flavors, this one particularly is one of my favorite Salad recipe. This Salad is enjoyed cold and it is very healthy. It contains a healthy mix of greens and tomatoes. It is not the typical traditional Turkish Shepherd’s Salad ( which I will make in the future) but have been modified to more modern recipe, to be used as a salad to go along with many dishes. This salad is very refreshing. It is usually a summer salad with summer vegetables, but I have used small champagne sweet tomatoes to give the juicy flavor of tomatoes even at winter time. English cucumbers or small size cucumbers with almost no seeds are best for this salad.
