Pear, Pomegranate and Spinach Salad

Pear, Pomegranate and Spinach Salad

With the holidays just around the corner it’s definitely not too early to start planning your holiday menu. My family is going to be coming to my house this year so I know I’ve been thinking about what I’ll be serving already. Today I was thinking about which salads we’ll be having so I thought I’d test some out. I happened to have a bunch of pomegranates on hand so I decided to build a salad around those. I love how festive the arils look in this salad when paired with the greens, and of course I’m in love with the entire flavor combination of this salad!

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate arils
