For many, warmer weather means eating lighter and healthier. Here’s a quick, new recipe for a Summer Delight Salad. The sliced almonds help to give it a Mediterranean accent.
3/4 cup pomegranate
8 cups torn spinach or mixed greens
1 cup grilled chicken breast (optional)
1/3 cup sliced red onion
raspberry vinaigrette dressing
In large bowl, toss half the pomegranate and the next 4 ingredients. Arrange onto salad plates; top with grilled chicken and remaining pomegranate. Drizzle desired amount of dressing over salad.
Makes 4 to 6 salads.
Pomegranates are nutrient dense, vitamin rich and have long been used to add flavor and crunch to dishes from different parts of the Mediterranean.
