Things are about to get real honest up in here, fast. During the holidays I plan to eat. That's no-holds-barred eating. Appetizers, sweets, turkey and stuffing - nothing is off limits. Food is one of my favourite part of the holidays, so I don't want to limit myself, anything goes next week!
This simple salad is perfect as a side or light lunch. Crunchy pomegranate seeds add sweetness to this salad, while the sliced persimmons add a nice pop of colour. The simple rice wine vinaigrette is just the right amount of tangy against the creamy goat cheese. An excellent salad to detox with after (or before) the holidays.
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
Fresh cracked black pepper & sea salt to taste
2 cups mixed greens
1/2 a persimmon, sliced
1/4 cup of fresh pomegranate seeds
1 tbsp crumbled goat cheese
1 tbsp chopped walnuts
1. Add oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into the bottom of a salad bowl. Whisk until combined.
2. Add mixed greens to the bowl and toss until coated.
3. Place greens on plate and top with persimmon, pomegranate, goat cheese and walnuts.
Tip // When making an oil based vinaigrette, all you have to remember is the 3:1 ratio. Three parts oil to one part vinegar.
I'm obviously looking forward to the food, what are you looking forward to this holiday season?
