Pomegranate Dressing And Green Salad
Susan is back with a beautiful Pomegranate Dressing And Green Salad recipe!
My hubby and I decided to stay in and enjoy date night at home. We just got in from out of town and didn’t really want to compete with the date night crowd. So, I decided to cook a steak, baked sweet potato and a salad. My salad turned out great so, I’ll share the recipe.
I discovered some products at the stock show a couple of weeks ago and later learned that they are also sold at Central Market.
These are manufactured in Texas at the Texas Olive Ranch and they are delicious. I didn’t even know that olives were grown in Texas! The vinegar is made from pomegranates and since I had never seen this, I had to have it. I have not been disappointed.
Marinade the steak in the Pomegranate Vinegar and Worcestershire Sauce for about 45 minutes. Sprinkle it with garlic powder and salt. Grill it for 4 minutes per side.
Cook the 2 sweet potatoes in the microwave for about 4 minutes and then put them in a 400 degree oven to cook until done. This saves time and takes about 20 minutes in the oven, instead of 45. I eat my sweet potatoes plain but if you want to be fancy, melt butter on top and sprinkle it with brown sugar.

Hi, my name is Susan and Permanent Posies (Creative Chaos) is my blog and my subject matter is…well, that depends on the day and the mood. But, for the most part, I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love.
