Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish.  This week we’re all about the healthy, trendy and colourful pomegranate! 

Tis' the season of colours, particularly of reds and greens. Inspired by the holidays' palette, our bloggers got creative with pomegranate salads, stews, cocktails (of course), and sweet-tart desserts.

Take a look at their ingenious recipes and you'll be convinced that, besides being a healthy superfruit, pomegranates can also pack a punch of flavour.

BTW, did you know that November is National Pomegranate Month?
