Pomegranate Salad with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette

The simplicity of a fresh salad is one of the hallmarks of all our meals. Regardless of what is on the menu, a simple seasonal salad is our favorite way to start the feast. Fresh, crisp lettuce, a bright addition of fruit and tangy vinaigrette is the perfect starter to please the palate.Our Southern California weather is so kind to us, allowing our garden to explode with edibles year round. With fresh pomegranates still clinging to their branches and our first batch of Meyer lemons ripening on the tree, we’re rushing to make this salad before they disappear. Fresh lettuce is abundant in the garden too, so, yes, we’re spoiled.

We’re fortunate to have such a fantastic citrus growing region too, allowing us to relish in many citrus varieties, especially the Meyer lemon. The bright, floral beauty of the Meyer lemon lends perfectly to a vinaigrette. Just a simple squeeze of the yellow fruit and you’ll have a terrific perfumed and appetizing dressing for even the simplest of salads.

Pomegranate Salad

The wonderful thing about this salad is that it truly is simple, with three-star ingredients that make it perfectly complete. Lettuce, the tart bite of pomegranate seeds and a bright Meyer lemon vinaigrette and you’ve stimulated the appetite and can appreciate three stellar flavors combined in one bite.
