Green olive, walnut and pomegranate salad.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Ariana, sweet Ariana, introduced me to this salad. It is amazing. I made it for a friend’s birthday. She wanted olives.

Ariana let me borrow the book it came from. It’s a beautiful book, a truly beautiful book. Turquoise, a chef’s travels in Turkey, by Greg and Luck Malouf.

The salad is vegetarian and I have a lot of friends who are that. Come visit me and I will make this for you.
