  • Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons roasted hazelnut oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves

Preparation

1. In a small saucepan, boil pomegranate juice until reduced to 1/4 cup, 5 to 6 minutes. Let cool. Whisk in lemon juice, oil, salt, thyme, and pepper.

2. In a salad bowl, gently mix spinach, radicchio, pomegranate seeds, and hazelnuts with dressing. Divide among 6 plates.

3. Quarter pear and core. Thinly slice crosswise, then stack slices and cut in matchsticks. Arrange pear on salads.

*Splatter-free seeding: Cut a pomegranate into chunks. Put chunks in a bowl of water, and, working under water, use your hands to break seeds free from pith.
