Pear & Pomegranate Christmas Salad

by inspiredrd on November 29, 2010

I put this salad together the other night with some of the organic ingredients from my Bountiful Basket.  The combination of flavors was outstanding, and Jeff and I gobbled it up!  I call it a Christmas salad because of the beautiful red and green colors, but this would be a delicious salad any time of the year.
