Winter Salad

Who says you can’t put together a beautiful salad in the winter? This one is certainly stunning – it’s made with greens, pomegranates, pears, and oranges – finish it off with pecans, blue cheese, and a delicious 4 ingredient dressing! Let me introduce to you, the Winter Salad!

 

After feeling like you just rolled out of the holidays. I love sugar cookies, delicious holiday dishes, and you can’t let them go to waste! lol!  Your body starts to scream for healthy meals! Mike is back to doing keto and Lisa is trying to get abs of steel. Little old me, just wants to feel better. That is why I made this delicious salad. Of course, it can be a full meal or even a side dish, you chose.

 

This salad will make your body sing! You can either mix the salad together with the dressing or plate it like this so everyone can choose what they want.
