Pomegranate Poppy Seed Salad – #SRC

pomegranate popp yseed salad

Did you make any resolutions this year? Do any of them include losing weight or eating healthier? No? Me neither.

I like to make goals each year, but they never seem to be about making dinners that are healthier, I believe in “all things in moderation” over denying yourself something.

BUT…I do have this wonderful salad I made for this months Secret Recipe Club dish. If all salad were this delicious then maybe I would make them more often.

A Day in the Life on the Farm is a wonderful and warm blog. Wendy has a way of making you feel like you are sitting in her kitchen on the farm. There were so many recipes I wanted to choose like this Chicken Noodle Soup, or this Blueberry French Toast Casserole.

I slightly changed the recipe. I used spinach as the lettuce because I love spinach other than that I made it exactly as Wendy did and it was wonderful. I really enjoyed the pomegranates in this salad. They are a pain to get out, but worth it in the end. When I was a kid my dad would buy a pomegranate each December and we would share it. I loved that tradition with my dad and now I share one with my husband each year.

Enjoy! And be sure to check out the other club recipes posted today.
