Posted in : SALADS on by : Admin

Fresh spinach salad topped with pomegranate seeds, crisp pears, crunchy pecans, feta cheese, and creamy poppyseed dressing.


  • 6 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1-2 pears, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pecans, whole or roughly chopped (such as Diamond of California Pecan Halves)
  • Dressing

  • 2/3 cup mayo (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup Half & Half (I used fat free) or other milk (any percentage of milk will work- the higher the percentage, the creamier your dressing will be)
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4 teaspoons poppyseeds
  • Instructions

  • Blend all salad ingredients together (except for poppy seeds) until smooth. Stir in poppy seeds. Cover and chill until ready to use.

  • *If preparing ahead of time, toss together all salad ingredients except for pears. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Add pears just before serving.
