Ingredients

Balsamic-Pomegranate Vinaigrette

  • 5 tablespoons pomegranate juice
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Salad

  • 1 apple, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups loosely packed salad greens
  • 2 cups loosely packed baby spinach, arugula, mache, etc.
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup fresh chevre cheese, crumbled

Directions

In a mixing bowl, whisk together juice, vinegar and mustard until well combined. Very slowly begin to whisk in oils, drop by drop, until vinaigrette begins to emulsify. As vinaigrette becomes thicker, add remaining oil more quickly. Season with salt and pepper.

Toss together apple, onion, salad greens, and spinach in a large bowl. Drizzle with vinaigrette and season with additional salt and pepper, as needed. Pile greens on a plate and garnish with chevre cheese.
