  • 1 bag lettuce blend
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup candied sliced almonds I used honey roasted almonds, but other candied nuts would work also.
  • 1/2 cup cheese feta, goat milk, or blue cheese would work
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1 pear chopped
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette homemade or store-bought


  • In a large bowl, add a bag of mixed lettuce. I used a butter lettuce and radicchio blend.
    Chop up a apple and a pear and place on top of the lettuce greens. If you don't plan to serve the salad right away, add a splash of  lemon or lime juice to the apples and pears so they won't brown.
    Cut and de-seed a pomegranate, and top salad. Or just use store-bought deseeded pomegranate.
    Top with candied almonds cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette. Enjoy.
