This side by Fiona Inglis has added sweetness from the pomegranate along with a lovely salty hit from the crumbled feta cheese


  • 3 zucchinis, peeled into ribbons

  • 2 Lebanese Cucumbers, peeled into ribbons

  • ¼ cup mint leaves

  • 1 bunch chives

  • juice of ½ an orange

  • 1 tbs pomegranate molasses

  • 2 tbs olive oil

  • 1 fresh pomegranate, seeds only

  • 150g feta cheese or soft goat’s cheese

  • 2 tbs currants

  • salt and pepper


  • 1.

    Wash zucchini and cucumber.

  • 2.

    Peel cucumber and using a peeler, cut the cucumber into ribbons. Do the same with the zucchini. Place cucumber in refrigerator.

  • 3.

    Chop chives into 2cm pieces and roughly chop mint.

  • 4.

    To make the dressing, juice orange and mix with olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tbs of pomegranate molasses. Whisk to combine.

    Finally slice pomegranate in half and tap the back of it’s skin with a dessert spoon hard - so the seeds sprinkle out over salad. Serve
