So today, as you can tell, I am getting started again and trying to do so early, because we’re going with some friends to the Big Ticket in Jax later today! Lineup you ask? Oh, Fun. And Of Monsters and Men, Grouplove, Paper Tongues, the Four Families (the drummer, Summer, actually works for Angel, and they are GREAT, so go check them out), Flogging Molly and more. I’m excited! And I love to support some local bands too.
So this salad is great. I had one similar to it at Seasons 52. I love the balance of flavors, and if you use the sesame ginger dressing, you’ll see what I mean. The reds and greens remind me of Christmas-time and tis the season for pomegranates! Annoying to shell, but oh so delicious! I recommend making this after the Sesame Orange Roasted Duck, as you can top this salad with the leftovers and use it as an entrée and it is fantastic. If you have a little mint, throw it in too…very tasty!
Pomegranate Apple Salad
Mixed Greens (We used Spring Mix and Baby Spinach)
½ Gala Apple
¼ cup Pomegranate Seeds
¼ cup Pecans
¼ cup Butternut Squash
2 Tbsp Green Onions
*Optional: Sesame Orange Roasted Duck
*Optional: Mint Leaves
In a bowl, combine the mixed greens, chopped apple, pomegranate seeds, chopped pecans (you can toasted these too if you like, I use a little honey), diced butternut squash, and chopped green onions (I use the green part only), chopped duck and toss in dressing.
Easy and delicious! We like to make this after we make our Sesame Orange Roasted Duck, so we can use the leftovers in this salad ;)
