    We received a question that a few of you may also have…

    Question: “Love your recipes — but what is blood orange olive oil? And pomegranate balsamic vinegar? Just a little juice added? I think I’m going to try it, since it looks so beautiful and sounds tasty!”

    Reply: “There’s a wonderful new olive oil shop in Denver, EVOO Marketplace, that carries both the pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette and the blood orange olive oil. For those of you who are not in the Denver area, and would like an alternative, you can make the following substitutions to the recipe:

    Use ¼ cup pomegranate juice and ¼ cup balsamic vinaigrette instead of the pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette.

    Use ½ cup blood orange juice and ½ cup olive oil instead of the blood orange olive oil.

    Thanks for visiting our blog. I hope you enjoy the salad.
