Pomegranate Salad Dressing

Pomegranate Salad Dressing

1 cup pomegranate juice
½ cup red wine vinegar
2 shallots, peeled and minced
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1 cup extra virgin olive oil, or a blend of extra virgin and high quality             vegetable oil

Put the pomegranate juice in a stainless steel saucepan and cook over medium-low heat until reduced to 1/4 cup. (This reduction will keep several weeks in the refrigerator in a clean, covered container.)  Combine red wine vinegar, 3 tablespoons of pomegranate reduction, shallots, kosher salt and pepper; whisk until the salt is dissolved.  Slowly add the oil as you continue to whisk.  If it separates, just re-whisk before dressing the greens.  This can be made and refrigerated ahead of time.
