Pomegranate Feta Salad

I actually blogged this recipe long ago, but for some reason did not have any photos of it. Which isn't surprising considering how fabulous it is! Really, ask my husband. It gets eaten before I can remember where I set my camera. Check my recent post for tips on how to get your pomegranate seeds out without a mess.


Here are some approximations of what you'll need to make a large salad for a family or gathering. Adjust for your personal preference, I never measure this out:

Pomegranate seeds of 1 piece of fruit
8 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1 pound fresh spinach

For the dressing:
3 1/2 Tbl Olive oil
3 Tbl Red wine vinegar
1 Tbl honey
S&P to taste

If you're making a smaller salad, just put the left over seeds in a container for another recipe or to snack on.


Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.

Put your spinach into a bowl and toss with the dressing. Top the spinach with the pomegranate seeds and feta.

 Enjoy!

I really love this salad, I think I'll go make one now!

  3. This is a gorgeous salad! I can see why it gets eaten so quickly. Pomegranates are a fruit I overlook a lot, but they are SO GOOD for you I need to fit more in to my diet. This is the perfect vehicle for that. Yummers!
