Watermelon and Pomegranate Salad

Watermelon and Pomegranate SaladFor Mother’s Day we decided to grill out in the backyard and relax. I didn’t have the bulk of the cooking duties today, which I really enjoyed – but I did contribute this salad. My mom loves watermelon and pomegranate so this was made with her in mind. It’s simple and easy to put together – and allows the fruit to really shine. The bit of onion adds a little bit of bite to the salad, and just rounds it out. It was a hit with everyone that came over!

watersalad2Ingredients:
6 oz baby spinach
4 cups diced watermelon
1 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup diced red onion

Dressing:
1 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons pomegranate balsamic vinegar (regular works as well)
2 tablespoons agave syrup
1 small lime, juiced

 

watersalad1Place the spinach, watermelon, pomegranate seeds, and onion into a large bowl. In a small bowl whisk together all of the dressing ingredients and drizzle over top the salad. Stir the salad a few times to allow the dressing to cover all the fruit and vegetables. Serve immediately. Serves 4-6. Enjoy!
