Salad Greens with Pomegranate Dressing

Salad Greens with Pomegranate Dressing
This is a simple way to dress delicate greens to make an elegant salad for a special occasion or just for yourself.  It was one of my experiments from Christmas which turned out well. 

Salad Greens with Pomegranate Dressing

Serves 2

Fresh, ripe pomegranate
Good quality olive oil
Champagne vinegar
Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
mix of salad greens, washed and dried
grated Parmesan cheese

In your salad bowl, break off a big section of a pomegranate and knock the seeds into the bottom of the bowl, capturing the juice, too. 

Add about 1.5 T. of good quality olive oil, and about .5 T. of Champagne vinegar, and a teaspoonful of Dijon mustard. 

Add salt and pepper, and whisk together well, breaking down some of the pomegranate seeds.

Tear the salad greens into bite sizes.  Salt the greens lightly.  Add grated Parmesan. 

Mix just before serving, coating all of the leaves with the dressing.
