I made this last night... what a gorgeous salad! I didn't have any sherry vinnegar so i substituted with red wine vinnegar, and then added about a tablespoon of brown sugar. I made this with your recent roasted chicken recipe, they tasted great together.

i love how open you are to trying new things - you're a better person than i....since if i don't like something, it takes a lot for me to give it another try. i do LOVE the way that this salad looks though. it's soo pretty and bright and perfect for the season.

I love pomegranate seeds in salad! They're the perfect combination of savory and sweet when dressed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Look so good, and I'm up for just about anything that will get me to eat more veggies. That includes fruit.
