Pear & Pomegranate Spinach Salad | Indianapolis Food Blogger 4


It’s Monday! Woooo-hoo! I’ve got a salad to share for Meatless Monday. Yep, Meatless Monday. I know what you’re thinking. The bacon lady does meatless Monday? Yes. While I love bacon, I do have moments where all I’m craving is a giant spinach salad. Enter this baby: Pear & Pomegranate Spinach Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette. Yes. Homemade dressing.

The flavors of Fall are all throughout this salad. Sweet Bartlett pears, tangy pomegranate seeds, chunky blue cheese and crunchy Pecans. The dressing has a balsamic vinegar base, but when matched with sweet and tangy pomegranate juice, it’s kicked up a bit. Simple and full of flavor. Checkout the recipe below.
