soooo good.. made for a dinner party and everyone loved it! I used roasted pecans pom red onion and feta cheese. I made a dressing ( balsamic with honey salt and pepper...mixed well then add a bit of olive oil ) and it was great with it! Plus be sure you dont drain the pom seeds and add the juice on top of the salad! Yummy!! Read More

I took this to a dinner with my girlfriends and it was not a hit. The pomegranate seeds did get some attention though. It'd make a nice salad around Christmas time given the red green and white colors. Read More

I made this for Christmas last year and it was beautiful. It's easy to remove the pomigranate seeds if you place it in a dish of water and remove the seeds underwater. This prevents them from popping out on the counter and floor. The red and green presentation of this salad is very elegant. Read More

I toast the walnuts first. The best dressing for this is if you can find pomegranate molasses and whisk in some EVOO little sugar and a dash of S & P. You can also buy pomegranate seeds already cleaned and ready at Trader Joes! Read More

A great combination of ingredients! My store was out of my favorite spinach so I used a spring mix instead. I also skipped the sprouts. I used the Balsamic Vinaigrette recipe from this site and it was a superb salad! One suggestion would be to toast the walnuts. Read More

Easy pretty to look at and delicious! I loved the crunchy texture the walnuts and pomegranate seeds added. Next time I think I would divide all the toppings into two halves so that I could toss a bit of it all together and then top artfully with the rest. This recipe's a keeper! Read More

Love this recipe! Most recently I was unable to find pomegranates out-of-season so I had to do a last-minute substitution of mandarin oranges. Was delicious and colorful too! Read More

this was a hit in our house!! i think you could serve it with or without the feta but i'm not a big fan of feta cheese. i served my salad with a homemade vinaigrette which i based off of "balsamic vinaigrette" on this site. Mix together the following ingredients and let sit for a little while to allow flavors to work together: 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 1 clove crushed garlic 1 tsp ground mustard 1 pinch salt black pepper to taste and 3 TB honey Read More
