Winter Salad with Pomegranate Seeds


This simple salad is a perfect first course for any winter menu.

Serves 2-4

For the salad:

1 small head butter lettuce, cleaned and torn into large pieces

1 handful arugula

¼ cup pomegranate seeds

¼ cup mixed chopped herbs (we like mint, basil and cilantro)

1 small avocado, diced

3 tablespoons toasted pumpkin seeds


For the dressing:

2 tablespoons minced shallot (about 1 small shallot)

1 tablespoon champagne vinegar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon hazelnut oil

3 tablespoons olive oil

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon honey

To make the dressing, combine all ingredients in a jar or other container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake until emulsified.

For the salad, combine the lettuces, pomegranate seeds, fresh herbs, and avocado in a serving bowl. Toss with salad dressing then garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds.
