Pomegranate Avocado Salad

Pomegranate Avocado Salad is a tangy and crunchy salad that is perfect in the winter or any time of the year! Plenty of pomegranate arils, dry roasted pistachios and sprinkled with crumbled Wensleydale Cheese. The crispy spring mix is finished with fresh avocado and Pomegranate Dressing!

This salad is great on it’s own, but adding some No Knead Artisan Bread would be nice. It would also be great served along side your Thanksgiving Turkey and balance out my Creamed Corn recipe!

A Great Salad Recipe

I am not sure if I’m going to be able to describe how incredible this Pomegranate Avocado Salad is.

It’s completely full of of all the great ingredients and such a show stopper. The best thing about it is it’s really easy to put together and would make a great salad for lunch or a tasty side!

Along with the pomegranate and avocado, another key ingredient is the Wensleydale cheese! I was first introduced to it at a friend’s luncheon. Another of her friends brought a bright salad that included blueberries and this Wensleydale cheese she discovered at Costco.

I’m sure you could find it without the seasonal cranberries, but its was a great addition to this salad.

If you can’t find the Wensleydale cheese, feta or parmesan would be a great substitute. I actually don’t like feta cheese, but if that is something you fancy, the crumbly cheese would be perfect. The mild sharpness of parmesan would pair well with the tender flavor of the avocado and dry roasted pistachios.

Have you ever tried piling a salad up onto a platter instead of tossing it up in a large bowl? This is something I’ve been doing lately and I love the entire presentation of it. It’s easier to get the perfect serving with every little ingredient and topping.
