How to Make the Perfect Winter Salad With Pomegranate and Citrus
Winter produce is totally underrated, if you ask us. Yes, summer brings berries, tomatoes, zucchini, and corn, but who can resist a perfect clementine? Or the incredible tartness of antioxidant-rich pomegranate seeds?
It’s easy to overlook all that the frosty season has to offer, which is why we’re letting winter produce take center stage in this seriously delicious salad. The nutrient-packed mixed greens and fruit combination is the perfect side dish to accompany a heartier entree. Plus, it’s low in calories (only 210 per serving) and doesn’t skimp on flavor. Who said salad couldn’t be a winter meal?
This anything-but-boring dish is guaranteed to become your go-to throughout the colder months, from desk lunches to dinner parties. While we’re especially partial to the creamy goat cheese, crunchy pistachios, and juicy fruit in this recipe, the best part is that the ingredients boast some impressive health benefits. Clementines are a great source of immunity-boosting vitamin C (which is especially important to load up on during cold and flu season!) and pomegranate seeds contain anthocyanins, plant pigments that give fruits their dark red or blue hue and may help decrease blood pressure and prevent inflammation. Yes, please!
