Drizzle some olive oil over the salad and add a pinch of salt. Mix everything together. Add the juice of 1 lime just before serving. SO good!
Add the optional ingredients now if using.
Tip 1: This is great to take as lunch to the office the next day, just be sure not to put lime juice on it until the day you eat it (i.e. take ¼ of a lime with you to the office and drizzle over the salad whilst you are there)
Tip 2: You can replace the mint with fresh parsley.
Tip 3: Don’t have pomegranates? Replace with red currants, blueberries or finely chopped strawberries. Whatever is seasonal, fruity and yummy!
Tip 4: This serves 4 as a main or 6 as a meze side dish. 
Eat with… sourdough bread or flatbread, dips, olives and fruit for dessert.
