REC: Pomegranate and Papaya Salad with Ginger Dressing

This recipe shopwed up in my in-box a day or two ago, and I was licking the screen by the end of it! Poms are hard to come by here, so now I have another recipe to add to the growing pile of pomegranate recipes I must try when I'm able to source some fresh ones! If anyone makes I'd love to know how it turned out for you!

Pomegranate and Papaya Salad with Ginger Dressing

  • 3/4 medium pomegranate
  • 1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped finely
  • 3/4 tsp. freshly grated ginger root, or 1/8 tsp. dry ginger
  • 3/4 tsp. sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbs. plus 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1-1/4 heads curly endive, separated into leaves
  • 8 cups baby lettuces, or other torn lettuce leaves
  • 3/4 medium papaya, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. thinly sliced green part of green onions
Separate seeds from skin and pulp of pomegranate (you should have about 1/2 cup seeds); reserve. To make dressing, mix lemon juice and next 6 ingredients; whisk in oil. Reserve. On a large serving platter, arrange endive leaves like spokes with tips pointing out. Toss papaya with 2 tsp. dressing; reserve. Toss lettuce with remaining dressing; mound over endive leaves. Top with reserved papaya; sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, then with green onion.
