Pomegranate Spinach Salad with Dijon Honey Vinaigrette

Pomegranate Spinach Salad with Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette

A fresh, unique salad is fun and easy to pull together and makes a perfect dish to bring to a dinner party.  I brought this one to Christmas dinner at my mom’s and it was a hit!  The fresh spinach, sweet pomegranate seeds, salty feta and crunchy nuts pair so well together and the homemade sweet and tangy dressing brings it all together.

For the nuts I used the candied walnuts and sweet & spicy pecans from Trader Joe’s.  This salad is perfect any time of year, I just loved making it for the holidays because the pomegranate seeds add a festive quality.

This salad would go well with almost any vinaigrette, and this Dijon honey one is absolutely delicious.  I’ll definitely be making this dressing for other salads as well.

Enjoy!
