Pomegranate, apple, fennel, and peppery almond salad.

pomfennalsm.jpgWinter salads can be challenging when tomatoes are tasteless and some weeks even hearty greens can let you down. This salad of pomegranate, apple, and fennel is crunchy and fresh-tasting. 

Pomegranates add a bright flavour and full of Vitamin C. Wonderful Almond Accents in the Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper flavour give the salad a piquant twist. 

Serves 2 (double for 4)

Vinaigrette

In a clean jar with a tight fitting lid:

¼ cup pomegranate molasses (find it in Middle Eastern grocers or at specialty stores)

¼ cup honey

½ cup Apple cider vinegar

¼ cup good oil

1 clove peeled crushed garlic

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

 

For the salad:

Rinse and slice thinly one bulb of fennel (Use a sharp knife or mandolin)

Thinly slice ¼ medium peeled onions

Peel and slice 1 medium apple, such as the Honeycrisp variety

Toss with vinaigrette and arrange on plates, then top with:

1 ½ tbsp. pomegranate arils per serving

1 Tbsp. Wonderful Almond Accents in the Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper flavour

(NB: Almonds have 45 calories per Tbsp.)
