Orange Pomegranate Salad

by Susan on January 4, 2010

The holidays are over along with tables full of beautiful festive food. While my body is craving clean, healthy raw food, my mind still is looking for beauty. Time for a festive salad! Oranges, pomegranate, pecans and greens topped with an orange chia seed dressing. Quick, festive and delicious!

Orange Pomegranate Salad

  • 2 C Romain lettuce, torn
  • 1 Orange
  • 1 C Pomegranate Seeds
  • 1/2 C Pecans, chopped

Tear romaine and place on plate in a circle. Remove the membranes from the orange slices and place on top of the romaine. Sprinkle with the pomegranate seeds and top with the pecan pieces. Pour dressing over top.

Orange Chia Seed Dressing

  • Juice from 1 Orange
  • 1 T Agave
  • 1 T Chia Seeds

Whisk all ingredients and pour on top of salad.

We made the recipe just like you said and it was wonderful. You have such a way with combining ingredients I can’t imagine deviating ;P

So…can you eat the hard part of the pomegranite seeds, the “seed” part I guess you would say.

Susan January 7, 2010 at 10:50 pm

Yes…you can eat them. They are a little bitter so I don’t crush them when I eat them.

That is one really nice looking pomegranate salad!

I made this for dinner last night and if I do say so myself it looked as lovely as your photo. Pomegranates are wonderful in salads. First time I used chia as well. Beautiful recipe and photo. Thanks

This looks just beautifully delicious! I want to make it for a dinner this weekend and am trying to figure out how much I need to make…there will be twelve at the dinner. How many portions does your recipe serve?
Thanks,
Brye

Most recipes here normally serve 4. You can get a good estimate by looking at how many cups of ingredients are in the recipe and then figuring how big your servings would be.

How many calories per serving?

Susan October 26, 2011 at 11:30 am

Megs, You would have to find a calorie calculator on line and enter the ingredients to find that information.

We’re new to raw foods, but if this is a typical example, wow! Going to get the ingredients today!
Thanks~
