Mikan Mandarin, Pomegranate Salad
1/2 Pomegranate seeds
2 Mandarins (or oranges)
1 cup toasted almonds
(optional: you can add bacon to the salad for a little extra protein)
1/4 cup WG Mikan Mandarin Balsamic Vinegar
(PS - any of our white BV's could be substituted here - Lemon, Pear, Strawberry...)
1/2 Cup WG EVOO Kitchen Blend
1 Medium garlic clove
Salt and pepper
1 Tablespoon honey
For the dressing combine balsamic, garlic, salt, pepper and honey. Let this sit to the side while you make the salad. Toast almonds in a small frying pan for about 5 to 10 minutes. For the salad combine all the ingredients except for the blue cheese. At this point, add olive oil to the dressing and mix until dressing thickens. Then toss salad with dressing. Once combined add blue cheese and gently toss.
Our Mikan Mandarin White Balsamic Vinegar is mouthwatering! It's also just one of ten white balsamics we handcraft here in Newcastle. Our Mikan blend was developed by Dewey (crazy big mandarin fan), using our white balsamic vinegar di Modena Italy. The "Mikan" mandarin's origin is China, however it's popularity was brought around by Japan. "Mikan" translates to "honey citrus," its a member of the Satsuma family, named after the Satsuma Provence this citrus was originally exported from in Japan.....and now you know more about the Mikan Mandarin than you ever thought possible :) Enjoy a bottle, and get a little Mikan in your life!
