Pomegranate Pear Salad Recipe

This Pomegranate Pear Salad Recipe is very deceiving because it looks difficult and classy BUT it is really an easy and simple salad recipe to prepare.

By using prepackaged Spring Mix salad greens, you save a lot of time in washing and drying the lettuce leaves. You can even buy pomegranate seeds that are all ready to use - saving a lot more time from peeling and seeding a pomegranate.

The dressing is a simple creamy blue cheese dressing. The blue cheese and the pear combination is what really makes this salad stand out.

Pomegranate Pear Recipe Notes:

1. If using your own dressing/vinaigrette, I would recommend adding some crumbled blue cheese to the salad as well. The flavour of the blue cheese goes very well with the pears.

2. Other types of nuts can be substituted for the walnuts OR they can be omitted altogether.
