Pomegranate Mint Christmas Salad

Pomegranate Mint Christmas Salad

It’s not even Halloween and I just perfected our Christmas salad, it’s never too early right? The red pomegranate and green mint give this salad Christmas wreath vibes and a refreshing bit. It would be perfect for a holiday luncheon topped with simple organic chicken or as a starter salad for the main meal.
