Gourmet Salad

by Pam on May 28, 2013

I saw this salad on Recipe Girl[1] and was decided to make it to go with the pasta I was making for dinner. I adapted the salad by using whatever I had on hand into the salad and I also used the leftover Fran’s Vinaigrette[2] that I had in the refrigerator. The salad turned out excellent! I love the flavors and textures of the ingredients and the vinaigrette topped it perfectly. My daughter said that she LOVED this salad and the rest of us did too. Simple and easy – you can’t beat that!

Prepare the vinaigrette. Click this link for the recipe[3].

Place the mixed greens into a large serving bowl. Add the carrot, cucumber, bell pepper, sun dried tomatoes, red onion, toasted pine nuts, feta cheese, pomegranate seeds, and croutons. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then drizzle with the vinaigrette, to taste. Toss until evenly coated then serve immediately. Enjoy
