  1. Score fresh 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. (Refrigerate or freeze any remaining arils for another use.)
  2. Prepare fresh pomegranate juice.**
  3. Peel and section tangerines. Place tangerines in a bowl with 1 cup pomegranate juice and sugar if desired. Allow to marinate 30 to 45 minutes.
  4. Drain tangerines; reserve 1/3 cup of the marinade for vinaigrette. Mix 1/3 cup reserved pomegranate marinade with the other vinaigrette ingredients and shake together in a tightly covered container.
  5. Divide spinach, fennel and red onion on 4 salad plates. Divide tangerine slices on salad and dress with 1 to 2 tablespoons of vinaigrette per serving. Garnish with fennel ferns.

I was looking for recipes to use my pomegranates and found this. This is absolutly the best dressing. However, I did leave out the cinnamon. We had it with a spinach salad with feta, walnuts and red onions. To die for! My husband said it was the best salad he's ever had. I keep running to the store to get more salad things. Will try adding the fennel next time. Not quite sure about the tangerines. Did sprinkle with the arils though. Beautiful! Thanks so much for posting!

If you want to impress dinner party guests, this is THE salad to present. I went with just a pinch more ground black pepper but did not need to change anything else. The flavors are amazing, balanced and complex. With such a beautiful array of colors, this salad looks elegant no matter how you choose to plate it. Absolutely a 5 star recipe.
