Summertime is in full swing here at the Moscato Household – which means our grill and patio are getting quite the workout with family gatherings and block parties with friends from the neighborhood. I love nothing more than filling my home with loved ones to relax and enjoy just being together while eating all of our summertime favorites. I remember last year one of my SweatSisterz bringing over a delicious dish of quinoa and pomegranate, so when I had the opportunity to team up with Sam’s Club to show off some delicious summertime block party foods, I knew this was the perfect dish to share.
I am not the only one holding Summertime Block Parties this season. Recently Mike and I headed off to our local Sam’s Club for the Swanson Block Party held right inside the store. Their Block Party featured all of the must-haves for you to be a #BlockPartyHero this Summer including Swanson Chicken Broth, truRoots Quinoa, Pace Organic Medium Salsa and more! We had a blast sampling these tasty block party treats! These ladies used Swanson Chicken Broth with onions and sweet peppers to make their truRoots, and paired it with grilled chicken covered in Pace Medium Salsa – I was amazed how something so simple had so much flavor!
Quinoa is one of my all-time favorite foods, and when you make it with Swanson Chicken Broth’s unique blend of flavors instead of water, you take the flavor to a whole new level. Swanson Chicken Broth is one of my staples year round, and I love that I can get a six pack from Sam’s Club, because goodness knows we use it a lot! Quinoa is so versatile you can include it in tons of recipes from using it to replace pasta with your favorite spaghetti sauce to using it to replace potatoes in latkes. truRoots Quinoa is Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, and Gluten Free. In this Quinoa and Pomegranate Salad, you have the savory taste of the truRoots cooked in Swanson Chicken Broth paired with the sweet, tart flavor of the pomegranate seeds to make the perfect side dish to any of your grilling favorites.
- 2 cups Swanson 100% Chicken Broth
- 1 cup truRoots Quinoa
- 1 large pomegranate
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 bunch parsley , chopped
- 1/2 cup pine nuts (optional)
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
Bring chicken broth and quinoa to a boil in a large pot. Cover and let simmer 15 minutes or until all broth is absorbed. Let cool. Fluff with a fork.
In a large bowl of cold water, remove pomegranate seeds and rinse well.
In a separate bowl whisk together olive oil, salt, sugar, vinegar, and parsley.
Mix all ingredients together and serve immediately.
Quinoa and Pomegranate Salad is the perfect, simple, nutritious addition to your Summer Block Party. And while you are at Sam’s Club, grab some of their new Pace Organic Medium Salsa which comes in a 2 pack of 24oz jars. Pace Organic Salsa is everything you love about Pace Salsa, but now USDA Certified Organic so you know what you are feeding your family and doing it for a great price. Medium heat makes it enjoyable for everyone, with just the right amount of umph. Pace Medium Organic Salsa is great straight out of the jar or you can use it as a topping to your favorite grill favorites – or my all time favorite is to toss it in the slow cooker with chicken breasts to make chicken tacos that will rival any restaurant!
