The sweet flavor of pomegranate is paired with citrus, then topped with a honey-tinged dressing, to make this refreshing salad a great started to a meal, or simply a light lunch.

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 2 mandarins peeled and segmented
  • 5 ounces arugula
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh ricotta cheese

 

For the Dressing

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

 

Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. (Do not put any oil in the pan). When hot, add the almonds and toast, shaking occasionally for 3-4 minutes. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the dressing.

In a large bowl, toss the salad ingredients. Drizzle with the dressing and gently toss again. Serve immediately.

Serves: 4 side salads.
