Today’s post is going to look and feel very familiar.
But when it works it works, right?
After gorging myself with mashed potatoes and turkey last week/this weekend, I’ve been craving fresh and light meals. And since these ingredients have captured my attention lately, I’m sticking with them: pomegranate seeds. persimmons, and spiced candied walnuts, to be exact.
And so I present to you the world’s most perfect post-Thanksgiving salad:
It is everything a salad should be – fresh, colorful, crunchy, sweet, tangy, and delicious.
Pomegranate and Persimmon Salad
- 4 cups mixed greens
- 2 persimmons, sliced
- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
- goat cheese
- spicy candied walnuts
- balsamic vinaigrette or favorite dressing of choice (recommend keeping it tangy)
- In a large mixing bowl add mixed greens, persimmons, pomegranate seeds, onion, goat cheese, and walnuts. Dress with vinaigrette and mix well.
I feel silly including directions, but you never know…
The only thing that would perhaps make this better? Crumbled bacon. But that’s a given; bacon makes everything better.
