Lighten up with a bowl of POMEGRANATE AND GOAT CHEESE SALAD with an easy and delicious homemade Pomegranate Vinaigrette!
I grew up eating iceberg lettuce salads with carrots, tomatoes, and cucumbers. They weren’t horrible, but it wasn’t my favorite part of supper either. Once I moved out and started cooking for myself I learned that I love salads. I love interesting combinations and flavors put together to create a unique salad every single time I make one.
Since pomegranates are in season and my tree is bursting with fruit, I knew I had to figure out how to use them in my salad. The sweetness of the seeds goes nice with the tart goat cheese and spicy red onion. I decided to add some almond slivers after I took the first couple photos and it really did make the salad complete…so don’t leave them out.
Spinach is full of so many wonderful health benefits and so are the pomegranate seeds, that I call this salad healthy…even with all that goat cheese.
