Andrea’s Pomegranate and pistachio salad

My cousin Andrea is over from Belgium at the moment on holiday in Australia. She made a salad similar to this one, and it is simple, delicious, and isn’t smothered in mayonaise (which is weird for a Dutch person).

Pomegranate & pistachio salad


  • 1 cup cracked wheat
  • boiled water
  • 1/2 pomegranate
  • 2 handfuls unsalted pistachio nuts
  • Bunch of chopped coriander
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Splash of olive oil

What you will need

  • Salad bowl
  • Fine colander or sieve

What to do

  1. Cover the cracked wheat with water and soak for 20-30 mins
  2. Using a fine sieve, drain any excess water
  3. Add pistachio nuts, pomegranate and coriander
  4. Squeeze juice of 1 lime, and drizzle with olive oil
  5. Season if you like (tasted nice without it)
