Researchers at Kikkoman Corporation in Noda Japan discovered that pomegranates are high in ellagic acid, which is an anti-oxidant found to protect skin against sun damage. Either eat 1/2 cup of seeds or drink a cup of pomegranate juice to get the skin-loving effects.

Here’s a recipe you can use with your pomegranates, for the new fruit of the new season. Just in time for Rosh Hashanah! L’Shanah Tovah!

Pomegranate Salad
4 cups spinach
½ cup pomegranate seeds
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a large salad bowl, combine spinach and pomegranate seeds
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  4. Toss and serve

Serves 4

Now that’s good eats!
