Perfectly Poached Pear Salad with Pomegranates
Savory, Tangy, a touch Sweet and unbelievably Delicious!
Every holiday meal deserves a fabulous green salad and this one adds great flavor and flair to the table!
Poached pears, dried cranberries, pomegranates, candied pecans and romaine in an tangy balsamic vinaigrette.
This salad will make an appearance at our Christmas Eve celebration.
It’s savory, tangy, a touch sweet and so delicious! Plus it too is super pretty and festive!
This salad works equally well served with other dishes or it can hold it’s own as a salad course.
It is not often we enjoy a salad as it’s own course, but on Christmas Even we enjoy the Feast of the Seven Fishes and salad is it’s own course, so this salad stands alone and is a real treat at the end of a great meal.
It’s simple but has a lot of flavors… savory, a little crunch with the pecans, a touch of sweet and tangy with the balsamic vinaigrette.
All you need is lettuce, pomegranates, candied pecans (easy recipe below adapted from Minimalist Baker), poached pears (easy recipe below), dried cranberries and a simple balsamic vinaigrette.
Hope you love it as much as we do!
