Orange Pomegranate Salad with Honey

I discovered this fragrant salad in a cooking class. If you can, try to find orange flower water (also called orange blossom water), which perks up the orange segments. But orange juice adds a nice zip, too! —Carol Richardson Marty, Lynwood, Washington

    Outstanding - I use it a lot. Especially good with Mexican food.

    There are better versions of this salad out there if you want to try. I've seen the recipes include red onions, cinnamon and mint. This is a good basic version especially if you need something in the middle of all the carb overload. We like it. I would suggest using vanilla extract if you can't find orange blossom water. Orange juice is not a good substitute.

    This salad is so refreshing, especially when you eat it in winter when heavy comfort food is everywhere. The orange flower water has such a unique flavor. Look for it in the ethnic / Middle Eastern section at your grocery store or at a good liquor store. It's a lot less acidic than orange juice and lighter than orange extract.

    I used orange extract and that made it too bitter. Maybe I'll try just plain orange juice again. I wasn't that impressed with the salad other than it was very pretty.

    This was a fun one to try with my young daughter who loves both clementines and pomegranates. It had some great color, but the taste didn't work for us. We used orange juice and honey for our drizzle, and I think it was the honey that didn't mix well with the other flavors. It might still make a great side but without the drizzle.
