I love a fresh and simple salad to complement my meals any day of the week! What I especially love about this Arugula and pomegranate salad is how crisp and festive this salad is!
It's a perfect salad to serve during the holidays because the colors are so elegant together! The fresh bright green arugula against the bright red pomegranate seeds make it a totally festive dish!
You can easily make this salad vegan by skipping the cheese. The dressing is homemade & it's such a quick and easy mix it will take no time to throw this beauty together!
It's a fantastic and simple dish that you can throw together any time of the week. If you like to store or prep your salad for the next day, you can keep the dressing on the side until you are ready to eat.
For this salad, I like to eye the amount of dressing I am using on it. If I am making a personal salad, I will just use a small amount of olive oil and probably half a lemon, but if I am making a large salad for several people I will use more ingredients.
When pouring the dressing on the salad, I like to say that less is more. Try a bite and see if the salad needs more dressing before pouring the entire dressing onto the salad.
If you accidentally add too much dressing to the salad, you can always add more arugula to thin out the dressing.
