Gavurdagi Pomegranate Salad

Gavurdagi Pomegranate Salad

Our recipe journey continues today with a salad you can easily take to work with you or enjoy in the evening with grilled meats! This salad is called Gavurdagi, which is a traditional Turkish salad similar to Tabbouleh, however, the pomegranate and walnuts add amazing new flavor to it.

We’re big fans of adding fruit to salads here at Fruitful Day (no surprise there!).  In case you missed it, we previously featured a mango chicken salad here and a pomegranate and quinoa salad here.

We hope you all have a fantastically fruitful week ahead. We have a few more recipes to share in our series of 7 so stay tuned and get ready to #rebootwithfruit!
