Arugula with Pomegranate, Blue Cheese, and Pistachios

This fabulous salad recipe comes from skinnytaste.com. The combination of flavors is excellent and you don't need much dressing because of the juice from the pomegranate seeds. This is a festive dish in flavor and color!



Ingredients:
4 cups arugula
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
2 tbsp pistachios, shelled
1 tsp pomegranate juice
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and fresh pepper

Directions:
Whisk vinegar, pomegranate juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Place arugula on two plates, top with blue cheese, pomegranates, pistachios and vinaigrette

Servings: 2
Calories: 195.3
Points Plus: 5

Notes:
To seed the pomegranate, slice halfway down starting with the stem end, break the rest of the pomegranate in half. Repeat so that you have it broken down into quarters. Break open the pomegranate flesh and scoop out the seeds. Place the seeds in a bowl filled with water. The seeds should sink and the excess flesh will float. Discard excess flesh and membranes and drain the seeds.

How pretty! I know my local Sam's club has the pomegranate seed already pulled in a nifty little plastic container. I can't wait to give this a try.

All of these ingredients are currently in our house, so I think this may be the perfect dinner! Especially since I stuffed myself at our work potluck today!

Oh wow. That salad is absolutely gorgeous. I have really gotten into fresh pomegranates lately. The boys and I love to just sit and eat a whole one for afternoon snack. I must try this one!

Such a pretty salad. I love pomegranate seeds in salads, they add so much color, crunch, and a bit of sweetness and tartness.
