Salad #34 - Fruity Winter Salad
  • Ingredients
  • 1 bunch of greens (really anything will work. I used a pretentious mix of swiss chard, kale and spinach)
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 1 bunch grapes
  • 2 mandarin oranges, chopped
  • 2 small handfuls sliced almonds
  • Dressing Ingredients
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 tbsp vinegar (I used a pomegranate flavored balsamic, but a white wine or apple cider would be prettier)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  1. De-seed the pomegranate. Cut it in half along the equator. Score the skin along the membranes of the fruit. Break sections off and rub off the seeds. Some people find it easier to do this in a bowl of water. I generally find this to be wetter.
  2. Cut the grapes in half. Cut the ends of the oranges and then cut off the rest of the peel. Chop the orange fruit into squares.
  3. Mix the dressing ingredients in a food processor or magic bullet. Alternatively you have chop the shallot finely and whisk to combine. Or mix the shallot with the rest of the salad ingredients.
  4. Toss the greens, fruit and dressing together in a large bowl.
