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.
