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.
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!
