Pear, Walnut Pomegranate Salad with Maple Dijon Dressing

On Tuesday, I published a delicious parfait recipe using the walnuts, pears and pomegranates that I found at the Danville Farmer’s market. Today I am bringing you one of my favorite fall salads made with the more of the same walnuts, pears and pomegranates. Sweet and savory.

Pear and Pomegranate Salad

I love the fall flavors┬áthat the combination of these flavors create. And the Maple Dijon dressing is the perfect topping. Don’t leave out the shallots as they really bring in the much needed pop of flavor.

This salad has a base of one of my favorite salad greens, romaine lettuce. Did you know that romaine is a heavy hitter when it comes to health benefits and nutrients? It is high in vitamin A, K, and folate. It is high in fiber and is heart healthy. It also is a great source for the minerals manganese, potassium, copper and iron.
