    Made it and loved it! As I am currently obsessed with spiralizing my vegetables, I turned the squash into thin noodles. Otherwise I did everything as instructed and absolutely loved this yummy and satisfying salad! 🙂

    Loved this recipe. I am a novice at Turkish cuisine, so it was my first time to use pomegranate molasses. I now use it much like a balsamic reduction on salads with feta cheese and baby greens. Your recipes are wonderful, and so healthy as well. I told you earlier I got interested due to Erkenci Kus series. Food is an important part of the show and now I know what some of the lovely food tastes like.
