Pomegranate Gremolata

A gremolata is a condiment made from chopped aromatic herbs and citrus zest. This variation is a particularly pretty one, and tastes great served with roast lamb, other roasted or grilled meats, or fish. Lemon zest is used traditionally, but you can change it up by trying lime, grapefruit, or orange zest.

Makes about 3/4 cup

Hands-on preparation time: 10 minutes

Total preparation time: 10 minutes

  • 1/3 cup fresh Italian parsley
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbs. lemon zest
  • 1 tbs. shallot, minced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

Place the parsley, mint, lemon zest, and shallots on a cutting board and gather into a pile. Chop everything in the pile together to mix the flavors, then toss into a bowl. Mix in the pomegranate seeds.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Best used within five days of preparation.
