Organic Spring Mix Lettuce

This bright green and red salad is inspired by the herb salad with toasted cashews served at Carmella. Plus, it utilizes the best trick I learned at Carmella: de-seeding pomegranates in a snap. And don't worry if you have uneven or whole leaves; that's part of this salad's charm.

  • 2 pomegranates
  • 2 bunches parsley (about 6 cups of leaves)
  • 1 bunch cilantro (about 2 cups of leaves)
  • ½ bunch mint (about 1-1 ½ cups of leaves)
  • 4 cups baby arugula leaves
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


Slice the pomegranates in half lengthwise. Make 5-6 incisions at a 20-degree angle into the base of each half. Over a bowl, place the pomegranate half seed-side down into your palm and whack the top of the fruit with a spoon. Repeat until there are no more seeds left in the fruit. Remove any yellow pith that might have fallen out along with the seeds. Place the seeds into a large salad bowl.

Cut the parsley, cilantro, and mint: Leaving the herbs tied in bunches and using a sharp knife, thinly slice the herbs starting at the top of the bunch. Once you reach mostly stems, discard the bunch. Add the herbs to the bowl.

Take the arugula and form it into a ball. Using the same single slicing motion, cut the arugula into small pieces. Add to the salad bowl along with the salt, olive oil, and lemon juice. Combine well and serve immediately.

Pomegranate-Herb Salad Recipe - Recipes

  • 1 orange
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 beetroot
  • 400g tin of green lentils
  • 250g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 spring onion
  • 35g cashews
  • A handful of flat leaf parsley
  • A handful of mint, leaves only
  • 1 pomegranate

Zest and juice the orange into a large bowl. Peel and grate the garlic clove into the bowl too and whisk in 2 tbsp olive oil. Add a good pinch of salt and pepper.

Trim and peel the beetroot. Coarsely grate it and add it to the bowl with the orange dressing. Drain and rinse the lentils, shaking as much excess water off as possible. Tip them into the bowl with the beetroot.

Quarter the cherry tomatoes and add to the bowl. Trim and thinly slice the spring onion and add too. Don’t mix the veg together just yet. Set aside.

Place a frying pan on a medium heat for 2 mins and toss in the cashews. Toast for 2-3 mins, shaking the pan regularly till they are lightly coloured. Tip onto a chopping board to cool, roughly chop, and add to the salad bowl.

Finely chop the parsley stalks and roughly chop the leaves. Finely chop the mint leaves. Place on top of the other ingredients.

Halve the pomegranate and place a half, cut-side down in the palm of your hand. Hold it over the salad bowl and hit it with a wooden spoon. The seeds should fall through your fingers. Repeat with the other half. Pick out any white pith.

Gently toss everything together then taste the salad, adding more salt or pepper if you think necessary. Serve straight away.

Parmesan-Crusted Snapper Fillet with Pomegranate Herb Salad

Always look for fish that has good colour and looks fresh. My best piece of advice is to never buy fish on a Monday – it was probably caught before the Thursday of the previous week. Ask your fishmonger what is good – believe it or not, fish has seasons too. Whatever fish you buy, treat it with care as it has a very fine and delicate structure. If you are lucky enough to have some in the larder, try cooking this in duck fat – you will be pleasantly surprised by the flavour.


  • 4 pan-sized snapper fillets, skin on
  • 2 eggs
  • sea salt
  • cracked white pepper
  • 100ml white wine vinegar
  • 250g grated Parmesan
  • 1 large fennel bulb
  • iced water for crisping
  • 1 large pomegranate
  • 100ml olive oil
  • small handful chives
  • small handful mint
  • small handful flat-leaf parsley
  • canola oil, or duck fat if using


Clean the snapper of any scales and spine bones. Whisk the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Dip the fish into the white wine vinegar then into the seasoned egg wash. Coat in the grated Parmesan. Repeat the process so the fillets are double coated in Parmesan.

Top and tail the fennel bulb and slice thinly using a mandoline. Place in iced water and leave for 10 minutes (this helps the fennel stay crisp). Seed the pomegranate and squeeze all the juice from the shell over the seeds. Add the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Drain the iced water from the fennel and pat dry. Toss with the pomegranate and add the herbs.

Heat a heavy-based frying pan the same size as the fish to high and drizzle with canola oil, or duck fat if using.

Place 2 fillets in the pan, flesh side down, and cook for at least 3 minutes, until the Parmesan starts to go golden brown. If the fish is stuck, cook for a further minute or so until it starts to lift from the pan. (Trying to force the fish from the pan will only break it.) Turn the fish and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and cook the other 2 fillets in the same way.

To serve, place some salad in the centre of each plate. Top each with a piece of snapper and drizzle with the remaining salad juices.

Keith Stewart’s wine recommendation

Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Riesling 2008
Smells sensational, with jewel-like aromas of citrus (mandarine and lime) a hint of honey and some delicious, crisp, bright flavours to match.

Villa Maria Marlborough Dry Riesling 2010
Too young really, but has some scintillating aromas to match tart up the fish, and enough piercing flavour to keep it company. Amazing wine at this price. Even better this time in 2012.

What You’ll Need To Make My Big Italian Salad

I suggest buying pre-washed romaine hearts so you don’t have to bother rinsing the leaves. If you buy a full head of romaine, be sure to dry the leaves completely after rinsing, otherwise the wet leaves will turn the dressing watery. I’m a big fan of salad spinners for this task, but if you don’t have one, a clean kitchen towel or paper towels both work well.

As for the veggies and cheese, I love a colorful mix of bell peppers, grape tomatoes, carrot ribbons, olives, cucumbers and a salty, tangy cheese such as ricotta salata or — if I’m in a Greek mood — feta. But feel free to improvise with whatever vegetables and cheese that you like.


A beautiful composition, but all of my guests stated that the salad was too "muddy" -- too much going on. I made it again but simply placed the salad (without the lamb) next to a couple of grilled lamb chops. This was a winner. The salsa was a perfect tie for the salad and the chops.

Loved this recipe. I did a greek yogurt marinade on the lamb and tried high end EVOO and lime for the dressing. Delicious!

Grilled onion salad with pomegranate and sumac

Yasmin Khan’s grilled onion salad with pomegranate and sumac.

This zippy salad is an essential accompaniment to grilled meats at the Turkish restaurants where I live. In fact, I sometimes wonder if I order the kebabs just to get a side of this. You can cook the onions on a barbecue or on a griddle pan. In Hackney, this recipe is made with şalgam suyu, a fermented carrot and turnip juice, which you can find in any Turkish grocery store or online. If that proves a bit hard to track down, use a couple of spoons of sour and salty gherkin pickle juice instead. This may seem like a lot of dressing initially, but fear not, you’ll definitely want to mop it up with flatbread, and I’ve been known to drink it straight from a spoon. To get the sweet and sourness you’re after here, tinker a bit and add more sour if you want.

Prep 15 min
Cook 15 min
Serves 4-6

3 medium white onions, peeled and cut into 6 wedges (450g net)
Extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp pomegranate molasses, or to taste
3 tbsp şalgam suyujuice, or gherkin juice, or any other pickle juice, to taste
1 tsp pul biber(Aleppo pepper)
2 tsp sumac
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp lime juice, or to taste
1 handful
parsley leaves, finely chopped
1 handful mint leaves, finely chopped
Salt and black pepper

Toss the onion wedges in a little olive oil and half a teaspoon of salt. If you are cooking over a barbecue, thread them on to skewers and grill for about 10 minutes, turning every few minutes, until soft and charred alternatively, heat a griddle pan until very hot, then grill on both sides and on their backs until cooked through – they may take a little longer on the hob, 12-15 minutes, depending on your pan. Transfer the cooked onions to a bowl and leave to cool for a few minutes.

Make the dressing by whisking the pomegranate molasses, pickle juice, pul biber, sumac, measured water, lime juice, two tablespoons of olive oil, half a teaspoon of salt and a generous grind of black pepper, then pour over the onions, add the herbs and toss to coat.

Adjust the seasoning to taste, adding a touch more salt, pomegranate molasses, lime juice or pickle juice as necessary. The salad will sit happily for a few hours, or serve it straight away.
