  • Directions

    Pomegranate Dressing

    1. In a small bowl, whisk together pomegranate juice, canola oil and honey. Pour over salad.

    Salad

    1. Rinse salad greens in water. Drain well. Place in large salad bowl. Add fruit, nuts and dressing and toss lightly.
    2. Divide salad among four large plates. Rearrange fruit to make attractive presentation. Divide chocolate shavings over top of each salad plate.

    * To get the health benefits, make sure you use dark chocolate (about 70% cocoa solids) and not milk chocolate.

    Chef’s Tip: A few great tips for salads:
    – Make sure your greens are dry, so the dressing will cling to the greens.
    – When making dressing, slowly add canola oil to the juice. The honey helps to thicken the dressing and keep it from separating.

    Nutrition Tip: Make vegetables and fruit the focus of your plate. When visually dividing your dinner plate, fill half the plate with vegetables, a quarter with grain products and a quarter with meat or alternatives.
