Spinach Salad with Pomegranate Seeds, Feta Cheese and Sunflower Seeds
3 cups Fresh spinach leaves
Seeds of 3 pomegranates
½ c. Crumbled Feta cheese, optional
¼ c. Sunflower seeds
½ c. balsamic vinegar
½ c. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp. agave nectar or raw honey
Pinch of white or black pepper
1/2 cup whole walnuts, optional
Wash and dry spinach leaves very well. Place into a salad bowl; add pomegranate seeds, feta cheese and sunflower seeds.
In a small bowl, combine vinegar and oil. Add agave nectar and pepper. Mix well; do not pour the dressing or toss your salad until you are ready to serve.
Tip: Always chill your greens, in this case spinach leaves, well before serving. To do so, place a paper towel over the bowl and cover in plastic wrap. The paper towel keeps the moisture off of the lettuce. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
