Here's a simple, deceptively filling side dish. I think it was probably my daughter's first taste of raw fennel and she was hooked. It's even easier if you have a food processor. I posted a similar recipe a couple years ago, but this one is a little bit different. It's got a little more sourness to it and a slightly different proportion of pomegranate. It's cute and festive; it might make a pretty and healthy addition to your holiday table.
