Fall Salad Recipe With Arugula, Persimmons, and Pomegranates

Fall Into Salads: Arugula With Persimmons and Pomegranate Seeds

After a long and filling Thanksgiving weekend, it's time to move away from the decadent traditional dishes and toward something a little lighter, like a raw salad. I jazzed up arugula by adding Fuyu persimmons and pomegranate seeds. To top these Fall favorites, I whipped up a quick vinaigrette of pomegranate molasses, fig balsamic vinegar, and lemon olive oil. Don't fret if you are without these specific ingredients; you can easily substitute with a touch of pomegranate juice, regular balsamic vinegar, extra-virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Ready to brighten up your next meal? Then get the recipe!
