Pomegranate and Pear Salad

Sunday, February 12, 2017


In keeping with my New Year's resolution, I've been working hard to get my daily five servings of fruits and vegetables. While I'm not successful every day, I have found that I can get, and even surpass, the five if I have a salad or a smoothie. A couple of weeks ago, I was perusing Pinterest and saw a really yummy salad recipe with pomegranates, pear, craisins, and feta cheese. It had four servings of fruits and vegetables, and I thought it was the perfect salad to ensure I got my necessary servings.

Salad Ingredients:
Canned pears
Dried cranberries (craisins)
Pomegranates
Feta cheese
Mixed lettuce greens
For the Salad Dressing:
3 TBSP dijon mustard
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of white balsamic vinegar
2 TBSP honey
Pinch of salt

Directions:
I left the measurements vague because, depending on your preference, you may want to add more or less pears, pomegranates, cheese, etc. It's really up to you. I mixed equal amounts of pears, craisins, and pomegranates, and a little more lettuce. For the dressing, depending on how much acidity you prefer, you can add more or less balsamic vinegar. Mix all the salad ingredients together, mix the salad dressing together, pour salad dressing on salad, and voila!
