Whip up this pomegranate herb relish to add to roasted vegetables or as a dip for crusty bread. We love to dress a spread up with this savory, crunchy and jewel-encrusted relish that really leans into some of our favorite produce - pomegranates, herbs and oranges. 


One medium-large pomegranate

Juice of one orange

1/4-1/3 cup chopped parsley

1/4-1/3 cup chopped mint

1-2 tbsps olive oil

1 1/2 tbsp Just Date Pomegranate Syrup

1/2 tsp salt


Prepare the pomegranate by slicing the top open in a star pattern and pulling the fruit apart along its natural meridians. Place the fruit into a bowl full of cool water and massage the seeds out of the walls of the fruit. With your hands or a slotted spoon separate the red seeds from the whites and exterior wall and remove them from the water. You don't want the seeds to soak.

Chop the fresh mint and parsley and place in a bowl. Drizzle with enough olive oil to wet the herbs and stir. Squeeze one entire orange into the herbs. Pour the pomegranate syrup into the herb mixture and stir. Add salt. Add pomegranate seeds, adjust any ingredients to taste, and set aside.
