Ingredients

Pomegranate, Pear & Pistachio Salad

  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 pear, chopped
  • 1 sweet apple, like Fuji, chopped
  • 1 small cucumber peeled and chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup roasted and salted pepitas (may sub. sunflower seeds)
  • 1/3 cup roasted and salted pistachios
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese

Creamy Pomegranate Dressing

  • 1 5.3 oz. container Greek Yogurt with Cherry Pomegranate (I use Fage)*
  • 3 tablespoons Sweet Asian Chili Sauce (found in Asian section)
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (add more to taste for "tangier")
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Whisk together all of the Creamy Pomegranate Dressing ingredients in a medium bowl and chill in the refrigerator while you prepare the salad.
  • Combine salad ingredients in a large bowl. If serving entire salad immediately, drizzle with desired amount of dressing and toss to coat. If there might be leftovers, drizzle dressing on individual salad servings. Top with freshly ground salt and pepper.

Notes

*You may substitute 1/3 vanilla Greek yogurt (won't be pink or have as much pomegranate taste but still delicoius) or substitute 1/3 cup strawberry yogurt which is a little sweeter than the Cherry-Pomegranate yogurt but still delicious
