Tips when Making This Apple Pomegranate Harvest Salad

  • For this recipe I chose honey crisp apples, you can also use other apples like pink lady, fuji, or gala. You can also substitute apple for pears as well!
  • You can use any type of greens for the bed of this salad – kale, spinach, mixed greens, or arugula.
  • If desired, swap feta for goat cheese or blue cheese.

This salad is the perfect addition to a fall meal you have planned or at your Thanksgiving feast. Even if you aren’t into salad – I can almost promise you will love this harvest salad! It is tart from the apples and sweet from the pomegranate seeds, and pairs perfectly with the tangy balsamic dressing.

    PEOPLE!! You have GOT to try this salad if you haven’t already! It is SO delicious! Made it the day after Thanksgiving for a lighter supper to give our bodies a break from the ton of food & desserts consumed the day before. Perfect with some hearty multi grain rolls. I added some warmed up rotiseri chicken I had from a few nights before . . .delish! Also used blue cheese instead of feta, candied pecans instead of plain (hubby has a sweet tooth) and 1/4 of a granny smith apple & 1/4 of a honey crisp per salad. All those sweet & tart flavors make your taste buds sparkle! So, so yummy. Do not skip that dressing either . . .it is SO worth making it, only takes 2 seconds . . .measure all the ingredients into jar & shake . . .that’s it! . . .just the perfect finish for this salad!
