Mixed Greens with Pomegranate Lemon Dressing

This salad is the perfect combination of simple ingredients. Pomegranates are delightful - fresh, crunchy, and gorgeous.

Mixed Greens with Pomegranate Lemon Dressing
from Baked Bree

For the dressing:
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Put all of the ingredients into a blender. Give the blender a whirl.

Taste the dressing to make sure that the seasonings are balanced. Test the dressing on a lettuce leaf.

To make the salad:
mixed greens
1/4 cup pepita seeds, toasted
1 pomegranate
salt and pepper
Pomegranate Lemon Dressing

Slice the pomegranate in half. Give it a gentle squeeze to loosen up the seeds. Then turn it over, and beat it with the wooden spoon.

Arrange some greens on a plate and scatter some pomegranate seeds and pepita seeds on top of the greens. Drizzle some dressing on top and season with salt and pepper.
