Evening lovelies! It is time for me to share some more recipes from my cookbook Regnbuemad and this time it is all about colorful salads with a special fokus on pomegranate that are in season right now ♥

I have been so excited to give you guys more sneak peeks of my book and to be able to share more of the recipes in English with my international followers, since my book is sadly only available in Danish.

I have chosen a couple of vibrant and fall appropriate (maybe except for the blueberries, but they can easily be replaced) salad recipes that I want to share with you today. They are so full of flavor and I just LOVE to make them both as sides or as a light meal – the blueberry-ginger vinaigrette is a must try! And dont worry you can just use frozen blueberries ;)

For my Danish followers – jeg holder en giveaway ovre på min Facebook side, hvor du kan vinde et eksemplar af min kogebog Regnbuemad. Så skynd dig hen og deltag, hvis du gerne vil have lidt ekstra farve i hverdagen ♥
