🍴 Serving Suggestions
I like to serve this salad dressing over a simple winter salad of mixed greens with cucumbers, walnuts and fresh pomegranate seeds. You might also try it on our Apple Cranberry Spinach Salad. Pomegranates pair well with arugula, spinach and kale and are especially tasty when combined with fresh orange segments, and feta cheese, too.
Related: Winter Citrus Salad with blood oranges, avocado, clementines, cucumbers, almonds, and pomegranate arils is both gorgeous and delicous.

Store leftovers in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Shake well before serving. (These are my favorite containers.)
