A fall and winter favorite--I am always eager for pomegranates to come in season so I can make this again. I make my own pomegranate juice by pressing the seeds against a metal sieve.

When making fresh pomegranate juice, put the seeds in a clean garlic press and press down hard. It works so quickly! Read More

The pomegranate was a nice touch adding color crunch and flavor. But this salad wasn't anything spectacular. I'll stick to some of the other salads & just add pomegranate when in season. Read More

Very tasty!!! The dressing is very balanced sweet from the pomegrante and pears sour from the lemon and a little spice from the pepper. I bought a small bag of spring lettuce and only had red pears on hand but followed the directions exactly otherwise. I'm sure the dressing would taste just as good cold so I'm thinking about increasing the amounts to make a larger batch and store it in the refrigerator. Read More

I actually used an apple with this since my pears were not quite ripe. Other than that--delicious as is! Thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More

This was nothing short of fabulous. It would be a great starter for a nice dinner so that the dressing remains warm. This is both easy and elegant. Read More

Absolutely delightful salad. Will definately make again as everyone loved it. I don't usually change a recipe the first time i make it but as this is a winter salad I thought I'd go with a little lettuce spinach and small baby bok choy leaves. I do love a combination of greens in my salads. I sprinkled very lightly with candied almonds on top. A real hit Read More

We had this for Christmas dinner and it was wonderful! I think I'd add a few less pomagranate seeds next time but I'd definitely have it again. Read More
