4–6 cups leafy greens (fresh spinach and romaine work well)
Arils of one pomegranate
2 pears, diced
4 mandarin oranges, sliced
6 ounces fresh raspberries
1/2 red onion, diced (more as desired)
1/4 cup 100% pure honey
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1 cup walnuts or pecans
Salt and pepper, to taste, optional
Rinse leafy greens, drain them in a colander, and set them aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine pomegranate arils, pears, mandarin orange wedges, raspberries, and red onion. In a separate dish, combine honey and lime juice.
Just prior to serving, add the greens to the large mixing bowl with the fruit and gently knead the ingredients together. Stir in the honey lime dressing and top with walnuts. If using large leaf lettuce or spinach, then layer a serving bowl or individual bowls/plates with greens, top with fruit mixture, drizzle with salad dressing, and garnish with walnuts. Add salt and pepper as desired.
For best results, enjoy this salad the same day it is prepared. Additionally, yield is an approximation.
