Mixed Greens and Double Pomegranate Salad

Yield: 2 servings (1 1/2 cups per serving)
Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped pecans, toasted
Directions:
  1. Prepare vinaigrette: In a large bowl, whisk together juice, vinegar, shallots, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  2. Add salad greens to the bowl and toss to combine. Sprinkle in pomegranate seeds and pecans. Serve immediately.
Tips:
  • Squeeze your pom seeds fresh if you'd like, but it's a little less messy if you just buy the pomegranate juice. You'll find it in the "fresh" juice section of your market.
  • If you don't have champagne vinegar, you can sub white wine vinegar- it'll give it a little bit stronger flavor, but it'll do.
  • This recipe can be easily doubled, etc.

    I made a similar salad awhile ago. I added in orange slices and almonds. I will have to try yours next time.
