    Do you eat the little hard seeds that are in the pomegranates?

    • Heather says:

      Yes, we do. Believe it or not they add a nice little crunch to the salad. Kind of like croutons . . . except totally different.

    Wow! Did you post this recipe knowing Your Health Source was sending persimmons home with their customers? I don’t think in my 4 years with the co-op that I have ever seen persimmons in it – and now I know what to do with them. Thank you!

    • Heather says:

      I wish I could say yes (and I SHOULD be able to since I’ve been ordering from Monica for years!) . . . but no. Happy coincidence, though! Quick note: The mint MAKES this dish. If you don’t have any you’re welcome to come harvest at my house. ; – )

      • Jolee Burger says:

        I actually have had bad luck with bringing my mint indoors, so I didn’t have any, but my sister came through with a little… I made this tonight, and I enjoyed it! I didn’t measure out the honey – I just eye-balled it, and I think I might have put a little too much in. Very surprising how everything comes together. Thank you again for the post, Heather!
