I had my parents over for dinner last night so I wanted to make a new salad. As I was shopping in the grocery store I saw a picture of a gorgeous salad on the pomegranate display. I couldn’t tell what else was in that salad but this spinach and pomegranate seeds was inspiration enough for me! This salad would be great for a Christmas gathering with the red and green of the pomegranate and spinach and it’s the perfect time of year for clementines!
