Baby Greens with Pomegranate, Goat Cheese, Orange & Pecans

‘Tis the season for pomegranates! I love these little juicy jewels! So…I decided to incorporate some tasty nourishing pomegranate seeds into a salad recipe.  Here is what I came up with…goat pomegranteI added a little of this and that and made this yummy salad. Fancy, right?

I think pomegranates add a little the holiday spirit, don’t you?  The red seeds with the salad greens just screams FESTIVE to me.  And anything with orange, pecans and goat cheese is a true friend of mine.  I think this salad might make a nice addition to my holiday menu and maybe yours?!

FODMAPers: Pomegranate seeds have a 1/4 cup limit per the Monash U. app.pomegranateSince nut and fruit quantities are limited on the low FODMAP diet, I used these ingredients sparingly just to add a splash of color and flavor.

    Kate that has got to be the most beautiful looking salad I’ve ever seen! Brava! I’m not used to fruity salads, but am learning they are quite appealing, especially with a good savory (and FODMAP-friendly) cheese. I tried green papaya (i.e.unripe) and that suited my stomach to a T (possibly for the v low fructose content). Feeling inspired to do an Asian style, FODMAP friendly salad….thanks for your wonderful blog!
