This salad is just the right side dish to add to your holiday spread. With all the rich foods at the table on Christmas, it’s always nice to throw in something light. This spinach salad is nutritious and loaded with fresh seasonal ingredients. The pecans and pomegranates provide a satisfying crunch, along with many antioxidants. The balsamic vinaigrette plays a big role in providing the main flavor of this dish. It’s an easy 5 ingredient dressing that can be whipped up in minutes. And you just can’t beat homemade dressing. Make sure to cut the apple right before serving so the slices don’t brown as quickly. When making salads, I can always rely on Main & Vine shop for the freshest in season produce. All the ingredients in this recipe, can be conveniently found at Main & Vine shop.
