Pomegranate juice and seeds provide sweet-tart flavor to this simple salad made with mixed greens.
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
1 1/2 tablespoons Champagne vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons minced shallots
2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 cups mixed salad greens
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
4 teaspoons finely chopped pecans, toasted
How to Make It
Combine juice, vinegar, shallots, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add salad greens, pomegranate seeds, and chopped toasted pecans; toss well to combine. Serve immediately.
Made it exactly to the recipe - it made a pretty and tasty first course for a Christmas-season dinner party.

Lovely & light dressing, made to recipe. Dressed greens, plated, then topped with seeds & nuts. Served before dinner, the tiniest bit of goat cheese would be a nice addition without too many extra calories! Would also be great as an after-supper salad, before dessert or cheese.

This salad got rave reviews from my family! I am allergic to pecans so I substituted toasted almonds and I added a sprinkling of gorganzola cheese - terrific!! Add grilled chicken for a fabuouls main dish!

I've brought this salad to several potlucks and it has been a huge hit. I also add crumbled goat cheese.

The dressing was fantastic. We used arugula and added blue cheese, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes. We found the champagne vinegar at Whole Foods.
