It’s holiday season in full force here and all the cookies and cakes and goodies are starting to take their toll. I adore baking and eating said baked goods but after years of paring back on sweets and processed foods the holidays seem to hit me even harder as a shock to my system. So for seasons like this my favorite way to counter the constant sugar buzz is with salads.
This balsamic honey dressing is one of my favorite ways to get the boys interested in salads. It’s sweet and tangy and so simple to make. They can’t get enough of the pomegranates either, so even if all they do is pick through the pomegranate salad and eat all the yummy bits…I still feel good knowing they are getting a lot of real food in them.
Tanimura & Antle Artisan® Lettuce is my secret trick for pulling together all my gorgeous fresh salads. I have been using their lettuce for years so I was so excited to partner with them on creating some holiday salads that are perfect table centerpieces! Their lettuces come packed in these great clear clamshells and each one has four small heads of artisan lettuce inside of it. So much color and texture for the cost!
I hope you make this recipe this holiday season and share it with someone you love!
