While it may seem like a random combination of ingredients- the bitter arugula, the sweet and crunchy pomegranate, the creamy avocado and the slightly salty goat cheese- it just works. If you don’t have pomegranate molasses for the dressing, you can use honey instead, or just leave out the sweetener.
This arugula salad is lovely on its own, or feel free to add some protein for a more complete meal: cooked chicken or meat, or some beans and/or nuts or seeds would all work (I had it with leftover roast chicken…yummy).
