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.

Salad Ingredients:

  • 6 cups mixed greens and red leaf lettuce

  • 1/4 cup mint, thinly sliced

  • 1/4 cup red onion, very thinly sliced

  • 1 pear, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 pomegranate seeds

  • 2-4 tbsp goat cheese or a nut-based crumbly white cheese

  • 1/4 cup dry roasted pecans

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 3 tbsp champagne vinegar

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 minced garlic clove

  • Salt to taste

  • 1 tsp honey (I use beekeepers naturals) (optional)

Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and toss with the salad.
