I am not one to turn down a challenge, self inflicted or otherwise. In general if I set my mind to something I can get it done. Quit chocolate for a bit? No problem. Commit to exercising 6 times a week? Done. Get more sleep? Difficult (due to my love affair with my DVR and sub-par television) but doable. The same applies to my recipe creation. I love challenging myself with new ingredients and new ideas.
Pomegranates are one of the few fruits in season during the winter. They are packed with antioxidants and have a wonderful sweet-tart taste. The combination of spicy and sweet in this guacamole is unexpected and delicious. I like to serve this inside of a romaine leaf, or as a dip for crudités!
Green Goddess dressings have been around for ages. The bright herbs make them delicious on salads or as a dip for raw veggies. They are usually very creamy and heavy. This one is simple, delicious and best of all has nothing in it that will make you feel un-goddess like!
