I bought a Pomegranite and have no idea how to prep it. I was going to add the seeds to a salad or vinegrette. How do you get the seeds out most effectively?
Fill a large bowl with tepid water.
Cut the pomegranate in half.
Take one half and, holding it over the bowl, force out the seeds by breaking up the pomegranate shell.
Everything falls in the water...seeds sink, other stuff floats.

Fantastic Mr Fox beat me to it! I was going to suggest same, which I have not yet tried but saw on YouTube. Previously, I did these steps without submerging the pomegranate in water. It's doable, but messy, especially if you have a juicy pom. A good one is totally worth the trouble, though.
Hi there! I just happen to have a very easy technique and recipes!
HERE's a link to de-seed that POM, simply! http://wp.me/p15ytG-c6
& HERE's a link for a few recipes!
1) Gingerly Spiked Cranberry/POMs: http://wp.me/p15ytG-gO
2) Spelt and POM bkfast or snack: http://wp.me/p15ytG-h6
3) POM's tossed in quinoa breakfast:http://wp.me/p15ytG-ga
4)Lime and POM Sparkling water:http://wp.me/p15ytG-lt
3)Toss the seeds in yogurt!
After cutting it, remove the membrane and seeds will fall out.
I learned to bang out the seeds with a rolling pin after slicing the pomegranate in half - ala Nigella.
Or cut it in half, squeeze it slightly (this sort of loosens things slightly) and then tap it with a spoon (cut side down) over a bowl as the seeds come tumbling out! Read this in a Jamie Oliver book I think and it works beautifully!
be very careful not to splash the juice on white window curtains like what I did!!
