Recipe

About a month ago, we went to a Rosh Hashanah dinner and I was in charge of the salad. Wanting to incorporate some of the traditional ingredients of the holiday, I wanted to make a salad with apples, pomegranates, and honey and fell in love with this simple salad I found on Serious Eats. At the time, I had to go to more than four stores to finally find a pomegranate, but now that they are in season I have been making versions of this salad weekly. It's fresh, slightly sweet, and just a bit tart and pairs well with almost any meal. I highly recommend using this recipe as a base and adjusting to find your favorite combination. I love adding thinly sliced fennel or apples, subbing in goat cheese for the Parmesan, and trying different nuts like pecans or pistachios. It's truly a salad you will want to make again and again.

    This is very close to one of my favorite holiday salads, except that I like to use apple or pear instead of cucumber and make the dressing a pomegranate vinaigrette by using balsamic vinegar in place of the apple cider vinegar and pomegranate juice instead of lemon juice, by pressing pomegranate seeds in a garlic press. Goat cheese is my favorite with the blend, but really, any mix of cheeses, nuts, and other fruit that appeals to you would work well.
