Orange Pomegranate Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

This vibrant orange and pomegranate salad is topped with a creamy buttermilk dressing. If you don’t have We Olive Blood Orange Olive Oil, substitute your favorite extra virgin olive oil and a tablespoon of orange zest.
See the original recipe at Brooklyn Supper.


For the dressing

1/4 cup We Olive Blood Orange Olive Oil
1 tablespoon orange zest
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 teaspoon shallot minced
1/2 teaspoon minced rosemary
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

For the salad

1 large bunch spinach
3 oranges
1 large pomegranate
1/2 shallot, sliced paper thin
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves plus sprigs for garnish
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. To make the dressing, one at a time, whisk zest, juice, vinegar, mustard, and buttermilk into olive oil. Add shallots, rosemary, and sea salt. Set aside while you prepare the salad.
  2. Cut very top and bottom off of oranges. Carefully slice off the peel, removing white pith while sparing as much flesh as possible. Cut into 1/2-inch thick slices.
  3. Pour most of the dressing over the spinach; turn with fingers to coat.
  4. Spread spinach on a large platter and tuck oranges throughout. Scatter with pomegranate arils and shallots. Finish with a final drizzle of dressing, a scattering of rosemary leaves, a pinch of sea salt, and several twists fresh pepper.
