It’s funny how the weather affects my taste buds. The warmer it gets the lighter I like to eat. Are you like that too? I made this the other day when it was a beautiful sunny day with a high of about 80 degrees.
It’s a refreshing, crispy, sweet and savory flavor that will wake up your taste buds. It’s summertime on a plate!
I got this recipe from Pinterest, which actually comes from this blog. It has a whole lot of goodness in it and is not only tasty, but really filling. The recipe said it served 6-8 people, yet we had only about a tablespoon of the salad left and none of the dressing… so riddle me that? Must mean we are pigs. LOL! Oink! Oink!
Anyway, here it is. Enjoy it on your next warm and sunny day where ever YOU are. Hope you like!
Ingredients (for dressing): Make this first, then refrigerate while you make the salad.
1- Fage yogurt with Pomegranate or Cherry. (I used Cherry)
1/4 cup- Sweet Chili Sauce (found in the Asian section)
2 Tbsp.- Pomegranate juice
2 Tbsp.- mayonaise
1 Tbsp. – lemon juice
1 Tbsp.- Cider vinegar
1/2 tsp.- Worcestershire sauce
Salt and Pepper- to taste
Directions: Whisk all this together, cover and refrigerate.
Now on to the salad…
Ingredients: (for the salad)
1 – large container of mixed greens, washed and spun dry
1- sweet apple, sliced
1- Pear, sliced
1- small cucumber, peeled and diced
1- small red bell pepper, deseeded and diced
1/4 cup-red onion
1/3 cup- pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup- pistachios
1/3 cup- pomegranate arils
1/2 cup- Feta Cheese
Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss. (You can coat entire salad, mix well and serve or plate the amount of salad you want and drizzle the dressing over top, (that’s what I did.)
