Tossed with mixed baby kale and spinach along with craisins, walnuts, and goat cheese with just a touch of fig balsamic dressing, this salad is the perfect mixture of sweet and savory and can be served as a wonderful accompaniment to any meal.
Winter Pomegranate SaladPreparation time: 30 minutes
Serves 8 (as a side salad)
1 6oz bag of mixed baby spinach and kale
3 oz baby arugula
4 oz goat cheese crumbled
1.5 cups pomegranate seeds
1 cup craisins
1.5 cups dry toasted walnuts
For the Dressing:
1/3 cup olive oli
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1.5tbsp fig jam
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
For the dressing, I put all the ingredients in my magic bullet and ran it for 1 minute. You can also put it in a bowl and whisk it - may take a little longer.
Toss salad ingredients together and enjoy!
I like to keep the dressing on the side so guests can decide how much they want to use. This dressing is pretty thick so a little bit goes a long way -- you may end up with some extra left over.
