Okay, let’s get chopping, crumbling, and tossing – this salad won’t last long.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups of mixed greens
  • 1 pear
  • 1/2 a cucumber
  • about 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup of crumbled feta
  • about 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
  • poppyseed dressing (or your favourite vinaigrette)

First, wash and dry the mixed greens. Then, make the dressing (if you’re making it from scratch, that is). My favourite is the poppyseed dressing. It’s so quick and easy to make, plus it’s not overpowering so it lets different salads shine.

Once the dressing is made, cut up the pear into 1/2 length cuts and then cut the cumber into bite sized pieces. Set both aside. Get out your pomegranate seeds, these frozen ones are fast and tasty. Crumble the feta and chop the walnuts. Then, it’s time to build the salad.

Mix the greens with the dressing and lay down on a shallow, yet big plate. Then lay out your five toppings, being sure not to lay the crumbled feta next to the pears. Not for any other reason that they pop next to the other colours.

Once everything is layered nicely, eat up!

The walnuts are a nice touch – you could even candy them, if you like. I candied pecans a while back, use the same method, just a different nut!

Well, there you have it, one bright pomegranate and pear salad – enjoy with black bean burgers, on its own, or with some lentil hummus and veggies.

Pro tip – you can prep everything but the pear, or dressing the greens ahead of time for an all time quick dinner. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Happy salad eating!
