Ingredients

  • 10 oz fresh spinach
  • ½ cup walnuts - chopped
  • ½ cup feta - crumbled
  • ¼ cup green onions - sliced, optional
  • ¼ cup pomegranate arils
  • 2 ripe, yet firm pears - (ripe, yet firm) sliced or chopped
  • ½ cup orange juice - optional
  • salad dressing or vinaigrette - I served with balsamic vinaigrette

Instructions

  • Place the spinach, walnuts, pomegranates, green onions, and crumbled feta in a large salad bowl. If preparing the salad ahead of time, dip each pear slice into a small bowl of orange juice and then add to the salad bowl; otherwise, add the pears with the other ingredients.
  • Drizzle with your favorite store-bought or homemade salad dressing or vinaigrette just before serving.

Notes

Dip the pear slices in orange juice to prevent them from browning after they've been sliced or chopped.  This allows you to prepare the entire salad ahead of time and keep it looking fresh.  If you will be serving immediately, you can skip the orange juice.
