Can we just agree to bejewel all our salads with pomegranates this time of year? ♡ I always think these lovely little red gems add such a festive touch to green salads for the holidays, and this pomegranate salad in particular is one of my favorites.It’s tossed with your choice of greens, sliced apples, toasted walnuts, creamy avocado, crisp fennel, salty shaved Parmesan, and my favorite shallot vinaigrette.I make some version of this salad every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas (and plenty of winter evenings in between), and it’s always just as delicious as it is gorgeous.
That said, this pomegranate salad is also incredibly flexible.So if you feel like swapping in a different kind of nuts, greens, cheese, or even vinaigrette, please feel free.I’ve also written this recipe to be naturally vegetarian and gluten-free, but you’re welcome to add in an extra protein (such as chicken or bacon) if you’d like.
I just insist that you generously sprinkle lots of beautiful pomegranate arils over the top like confetti, and then share and enjoy.Happy holidays, everyone!
