Doesn’t this look like a terrific salad for your holiday table? I think it looks like Christmas with all those lovely red pomegranate seeds and bright green spinach leaves!

I haven’t had pomegranate seeds since I was a kid, and my cousin got me hooked on them. We used to peel the fruit and then pick the seeds out. I’d forgotten how crunchy and sweet they are.

I was keeping the calories in check for this weekday meal, but I’ll add some crumbled blue cheese (maybe feta?) when I serve it for Christmas dinner. Won’t that be a pretty salad!
Happy cooking!
