  • Squeezing fresh lemon is optional but will add more fresh feel to your salad.
  • You can skip pomegranate and use other kind of fruits available. Best alternative will be strawberries, peaches or even mandarins, bloody orange or pomelo.
  • For more Asian feel, you can also add sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds to your vinaigrette.
