Enjoy this favorite and simple winter fruit salad recipe. In addition to its beauty, this salad packs a punch. We love this fruit salad for the flavor and because it is chalk full of fiber from the pears and super powered anti-oxidants from the pomegranate.
Pear Pomegranate and Mixed Green Fruit Salad Recipe
3-4 handfuls of organic mixed greens
2 organic pears ripe (you can check this by slightly pressing in on the neck of the pear–if it gives to thumb pressure the pear is ready).
1 organic pomegranate
optional: gorgonzola cheese, spiced pecans or slivered almonds (don’t worry though – this salad stands up on its own!)
2 T olive oil
2 T white or golden balsamic vinegar
1 T course country mustard
Slice pears, cut pomegranate and pull out seeds (one easy technique is to rinse pomegranate sections under water and work seeds into a bowl of water). Just be careful — these will stain counter tops and clothing! Add fruit to mixed greens. In a smaller cup add olive oil, vinegar, and mustard. Stir with a fork to emulsify the dressing. Dress salad as desired, plate, serve, and enjoy!
