Hello again my dear friends and blog readers. Today's recipe is a another very easy to make dish; a full of flavours, colorful and refreshing salad made with chicory, pomegranate, fried garlic in Olive Oil, Sherry Vinegar and Salt.
Honestly, I have no idea of the origin of this salad but a lot of people eat this type of salad in Spain and also use escarole lettuce in stead of chicory. Definetly, this is a salad for those who likes an explosion of strong flavours due to the mixture of the bitterness of chicory, mixed along with the sourness and sweetness of pomegranate, sherry vinegar, garlic and a hint of salt. This is a perfect salad for summer time, but also can be eaten at any other season. I hope you all enjoy this salad as much as I do.
