“This salad was a pleasant surprise, it was light, refreshing and full of flavor. We really enjoyed the way the different flavors and textures blended in this dish to create a tasty salad, nothing was overpowering. The tangy, sweet, rich pomegranate juice really enhanced this dish and pulled it all together.”
