This salad is a must for your holiday table this season! In addition to the beauty of this salad, it is full of antioxidants, heart healthy fats and fiber. It comes together quickly with minimal ingredients but is packed with a ton of flavor and nutrients. The pomegranate arils are full of antioxidants, add a satisfying crunch and they look like beautiful ruby gemstones. The combination of green and red gives it a holiday flare
Gather everyone in the kitchen to help with this easy to make recipe. Your children/family can help by “mining” the ruby gemstones from the pomegranate and tossing them with the salad.
