-Seeds of two pomegranates

For the dressing:

In a Cuisinart or blender puree egg and shallot for about 15 seconds until smooth. With machine running slowly add oil. Add all other ingredients and puree until smooth. Thin a bit with water until its more like a creamy dressing and less like mayonnaise.
