Pomegranate Fall Salad

With the holidays just around the corner it’s definitely not too early to start planning your holiday menu. I’ll be traveling for Christmas, but I still want to be able to bring along something. It’s got to be easy since I’ll have limited access to stores and kitchens. And it’ll need to be fast so I can whip it together in just a few hours after landing. I’m type A through and through so you 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! The onions even add a little spice!

This salad has definitely made the cut for my holiday menu. I don’t think I’ll want to wait until the holidays to make it again! I might even add some grilled chicken and make a full dinner out of it! I hope you love it too!
