Dalimba/Pomegranate salad was an innovative dish my ma-in-law prepared when we were in Bangalore few days back.We had a family/cousins get together and as usual she came up with this lovely salad which made everyone ask for more.All of us had a great time and I miss those days sitting here in Chennai!!!My bro-in-law,vanni and their kiddo have gone back to Botswana.Today morning I was surprised to get an sms from my ma-in-law.She said she is learning to send sms and that she missed all of us badly..
Coming back to the salad,its not something too different in taste as compared to the normal salad,but the inclusion of pomos gives it a unique taste.When you eat the salad,the taste buds are tickled with the sweetish taste of pomos here and there.Yummy and healthy too.Do try it out for a change from the normal cucumber-onion-tomato salad!
