 Zimmy’s Nook pulled together this simple but luscious salad that highlights the bright and tangy flavors of winter fruits, perfectly complemented by a simple honey Dijon vinaigrette. This salad is stunning for a special dinner but so simple you’ll want to get it on the table regularly. 


Salad Ingredients:

4 cups Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Red Butter Lettuce

4 cups Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Arugula

1 cup fresh pomegranate arils

2 blood oranges, skin removed & sliced

2 seedless clementines, peeled & sectioned

1 small apple, core removed, thinly sliced (I used a Pink Lady)

1/2 cup candied pecan pieces (store bought or home made)

Honey Dijon Dressing (recipe follows)

Honey Dijon Dressing

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


Place the greens on a large platter. Add the, oranges, clementines and apple, then sprinkle with pomegranate arils and pecans.

Just before serving, drizzle about 1/2 cup of the dressing (more to taste) over the salad and gently toss.

Honey Dijon Dressing

Combine all ingredients in a glass jar (with a tight-fitting lid) and shake well to combine.

Refrigerate leftover dressing and use for another salad or drizzle on roasted vegetables.
