Salad with pomegranates and pecans

I like to add pomegranates to my salads. They are juicy and pop easily when you bite into them! I usually bring this salad to potlucks or parties because it’s so colorful and easy to conjure and I always get compliments! Simple but elegant autumn or winter salad that is perfect as a starter for the holidays or as a simple side dish or lunch.

This was one of the first recipes I published in 2008 (wow, that’s over 10 years ago!) when I started blogging and didn’t even have a good camera. It is so hard to find these older recipes now because I have re-photographed them with better photos and instructions over the years. I always change the date to bring the post up so you can see everyone since I now have thousands of recipes here!

Food preparation

Would you like to prepare this for lunch? You can prepare the dressing, it stays well chilled in an airtight container for 2 weeks. Simply halve the salad ingredients and separate them into 4 food preparation containers. If you want, you can add grilled chicken or grilled fish to get more protein.

Variations

Blue cheese or goat cheese can be used instead of Gorgonzola Salad over the top!

Are Pomegranate Seeds Healthy?

Pomegranates are rich in vitamin C, potassium and fiber. Most of this fiber is found in the white seeds that are hidden under the juice pockets.
