POMEGRANATE POTATO SALAD

Photobucket

Who doesnt love these Gems????In California, some local grocery stores carry this fruit, usually around November-February month,which of course is quite a short season for me. During that time I load my cart with the juiciest, largest "Gems=Pomegranates!" ,as many as I can and start having those seeds, without caring about the stains they leave all over the kitchen counter/Bowls/ clothes (difficult to get rid off).

This simple salad besides looking juicy, makes a great appetizer, too.If you ar too conscious then try replacing Potatoes with your favorite vegetable(Steamed carrot/cauliflower...) but dont compromise with the sour cream.Its different!!!!

INGREDIENTS:

Pomegranate---------------------------1 De-seeded
Potatoes--------------------------------2 medium ones boiled,peeled and cut to bitsize pcs
Sour Cream----------------------------4tbp or less or more
Red onion----------------------------- 1 medium to small one chopped
Cilantro+Mint-------------------------1 tsp each chopped
Salt+Pepper+Chat masala------------to taste

DIRECTIONS:

1.Extract the seeds from pomegranate.I guess everyone knows how to......

2.In a bowl combine all the ingredients together and mix together thoroughly.

3.Refrigerate for 2--30 mins till it gets chilled.

4.Serve plain or with bread.
