The pomegranate fruit has become an everyday ingredient in all of my weekly salads. I know it’s a fruit but I’m a great believer in mixing vegetables and fruits together in my salads. This gives me unique tastes every time and also stops my salads becoming bland and boring. When your food becomes repetitive and boring you will generally over time stop eating the food altogether. Some people already find salads hard to eat so by mixing the different fruits and veggies together you will have a different taste every week. After a few weeks of eating the salads you will have found the taste you like.
This salad that I like might not be to every ones taste but you can always use the idea and tweak the ingredients to suit your taste.
1. A small bag of baby spinach leaves.
2. 7 small baby tomato’s.
3. ½ cup of broken feta cheese
4. ½ cup of broken walnuts
5. The seeds from one pomegranate fruit
6. ¼ of a red onion
7. 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil
8. 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
Place the spinach leaves in the salad bowl after you have washed them. 10 -15 leaves should be enough.
Cut the baby tomato’s in half and place in the bowl along with the walnuts, feta and red onion.
Place or sprinkle the pomegranate seeds on top and pour the balsamic vinegar and olive oil over the top.
