My husband was so excited when I surprised him with this POMEGRANATE PEAR AND CANDIED PECAN SALAD for lunch one day. We both love salads with fresh, yummy ingredients and it’s always fun to try a new combination of flavors. This salad has such great textures and flavors. The fruit and candied pecans are sweet and are balanced by the salty feta cheese and the tang from the orange poppy seed vinaigrette.
Here is the simple recipe for our POMEGRANATE PEAR and CANDIED PECAN SALAD as well as the orange vinaigrette to smother it in. This salad is packed with yummy pomegranate arils, red pears, candied pecans, feta cheese and mandarin oranges on top of a bed of spinach and leafy greens. We thought that it looked beautiful and would be great to take to a holiday party.
