This is the salad of all salads. The best way to get even the pickiest of eaters to eat their veggies…. smother it with tasty fruit! The sweetness of the pomegranate and orange pairs so nicely with the bitterness of the arugula. MMM.
I made this on Christmas Eve, and then unexpectedly ended up making it Christmas Day! And then, again yesterday. SUCH a big hit. Everyone in my family absolutely loves it. All 3 days, with all different people, it was gone fairly quickly. Pretty sure at no party ever in my house was the salad the first food to go!
Salad is salad, there is really no wrong amount of ingredients. If you are a huge fan of celery, but hate onion, put a billion stalks of celery and no onion! Whatever floats your boat 🙂 But if you want to do EXACTLY what I did, here is the approximate amount of what I used…
6 oz arugula
3 oz mixed greens
4 stalks celery
1/2 red onion
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup olive oil
1. Add the greens to a bowl. Carefully, take out the pom seeds. Peel the orange and cut each slice into thirds. Thinly slice the red onion. Dice the celery. Throw all on top of the greens.
2. Add the lemon juice, olive oil and then toss all together! If you are not eating right away, hold on the dressing. You can leave on the table, or, just toss right before eating. Or, another reason to just leave on the table and let people add their own is because if there are any leftovers, it won’t get mushy the next day!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
