Pear Pomegranate Salad with Orange Vinaigrette

Today I'm excited to share with you my Pear Pomegranate Salad recipe with Orange Vinaigrette. This delicious antioxidant-rich salad recipe would be a lovely addition to this coming "Giving Thanks" day. The orange-cinnamon dressing pairs perfectly with the crunchy pomegranate, sweet pears, and toasted pecans!

Pomegranates are my children's favorite fruit to eat as of late! Well that and those delightful little satsuma mandarins. Even my twin toddler boys can eat a whole, large pomegranate themselves. In fact, they love this salad, dressing, greens and all!

Wow - you have been BIZZEE! Another delicious recipe that I can't wait to try. Great pic of the arils, and now we know the whole month is dedicated to them - thanks, Shirley:)
Our dinner is a feast for all senses - I look forward to pulling it all together next week!

Oh my gosh, I know this salad would be great. I've rediscovered pears since I got hooked on your green smoothies. And, those arils are just the most beautiful and the tastiest I think, although I'd never eaten any before going to the POM Wonderful blogger harvest festival. (BTW, November is national pomegranate month. I just learned that recently, too.) I love it that I'm still discovering foods that have always been available, but are new and wonderful to me!

You haven't made a dish yet that didn't blow me away with its beauty and flavors, Ali! The progressive dinner is such fun and is giving us all great recipes. :-)


Ali -- you always seem to hit the "sweet spot" with your salad creations. I love your ideas and your healthy, but simple dressings are always wonderful. I like the thought of combining pears, pomegranates and oranges. And it's SO pretty! This one is a "keeper" for sure! Thanks!

Cranberry Orange Upside Down Cake (grain-free)

I adore cranberries as you probably already know if you've been reading my blog. This healthy cranberry orange upside down cake recipe isn't very rich or sweet. In fact I sweeten it with just a few tablespoons of maple syrup. It's plenty sweet for my family though.
