Prepare fresh pomegranate arils, if necessary.* Reserve 1/2 cup of the arils from fruit and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.) Place the shallots, lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl and let sit 5 minutes. Whisk in the pomegranate molasses** and then the olive oil. Stir in the fresh pomegranate arils and the parsley. Taste for balance and seasoning. Serve this pomegranate recipe.
*To prepare fresh arils, score 1–2 large POM Wonderful Pomegranates and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranates under water to free the arils (seed sacs). The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl.
**To make pomegranate molasses, combine 3 cups of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice, 1/4 cup sugar and juice from one lemon and bring to a simmer. Reduce until a very thick syrup forms that can thickly coat the back of a spoon, then cool to room temperature.
