Pomegranate Spinach Salad

P1020239Eating a bit too much chocolate at work? Going out for Christmas lunches, company Christmas dinners, evenings out with friends, and indulging in all things rich, delicious, boozy and associated with the Christmas season? Hell, have you been staying at home to avoid the crowds and eating too much take-out, bags of potato chips, and left over Halloween candy?

You need a salad. I need a salad. So here’s a salad that visually looks like Christmas, tastes delicious, but won’t clog your arteries.

POMEGRANATE SPINACH SALAD

1 pomegranate
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tsp honey
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
8 cups fresh baby spinach
2 oranges, peeled and segemented
1/2 small red onion, super thinly sliced

Remove the seeds from the pomegranate. If you know of an easy way to do this, share it with me. Our kitchen walls, my shirt, our counters, our floor, was covered in pomegranate juice.

In a small bowl combine the oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper. Whisk.

In a large bowl combine the spinach, orange segments, onion and pomegranate seeds. Toss.

Drizzle vinegar mixture. Toss to coat.

Eat, enjoy, and feel good about yourself.
