Look for pomegranate molasses in Middle Eastern markets and health-foods stores. Its strong flavor makes this dressing better suited to pasta salads than green salads. As a marinade, it's best with pork, dark-meat chicken, and salmon.

About 1 1/2 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon)

1 cup fresh orange juice

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup extravirgin olive oil


Combine all ingredients except oil, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add oil, stirring constantly with a whisk until well combined.
