Salads are a regular feature in my home, especially for lunch. For one, the variety that one can make is mind-boggling. You can never get bored! For another, they are super easy to put together. That makes lunchtime prep a breeze. And as a gardener, the joys of picking greens from the backyard and churning up something delicious is priceless.

In this harvest salad, I’ve used seasonal produce. You can shake things up by changing the fruit and greens combination.

Ingredients For Salad

4 cups baby spinach or mixed greens

½ cup pomegranate arils

1 apple, sliced long

1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, freshly grated (or use any vegan cheese)

Ingredients For Salad Dressing

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp olive oil

¼ tsp Himalayan pink salt

½ tbsp honey, or maple syrup

½ tsp black pepper, freshly ground

½ tsp red chili flakes, or to taste

Steps To Make the Salad

Add tender, baby spinach to a large bowl.

Add pomegranate arils.

Add freshly grated cheese, followed by apple slices and mixed nuts.

Steps To Make The Salad Dressing

In a bowl or bottle, combine apple cider vinegar, olive oil, honey or maple syrup, salt, freshly ground black pepper and chili flakes. Whisk well.

You can save this dressing in your pantry for later use as well. Use a glass bottle with a tight-fitting cap.

Before serving, toss the salad with salad dressing. Vary dressing quantity based on preference.

Recipe Notes

You can prep this salad for a couple of days. Add the dressing and apples just before serving.
