Just received a box of pomegranates from a California cousin. I adore to eat the seeds as is, and to sprinkle them on salads or desserts... but what else could I be doing? Making a juice and then flavoring a panna cotta or cheesecake? Am not feeling very creative about this...

My friend Sarah made this for a dinner party last night - you could use your fresh juice. It was really tasty.

May I also recommend searching Tastespotting for pomegranate; I did looking for the above recipe and my mouth is totally watering.

Outside the box a bit (hey, that's my job) but you could shave some fennel, red onion, and thinly slice grapefruit along the horizon and then sprinkle some pomegranet seeds over. Just dress with a little oil.It's kind of a Batali thing.

There is an arugula-fennel-orange salad with pomegranate seeds at epicurious that is delicious. The recipe is attributed to Isa in San Francisco. I have made it several times for potlucks and people always ask for the recipe. I highly recommend this salad!
