Today I’ll be sharing a yummy pomegranate salad with you. I just recently discovered you can buy JUST the pomegranate seeds and my life is forever changed. I love pomegranate seeds, but I have always hated cutting pomegranates. I made this pomegranate salad with quinoa and it was quite delicious. Not to mention super easy and healthy! :) I have almost completely converted my family to quinoa and I’m super happy about that. The health benefits are great!
Pomegranate salad with quinoa
I served this pomegranate salad with grilled chicken and it was great! Now that you have a new healthy recipe for spring… you can take it along with you to work or play dates with Glad To Go Lunch. I was super excited to find out about their new containers. I have always hated bringing salads on the go because the salad always gets wilted. These containers are the perfect solution! The dressing has its own little compartment and keeps the salad fresh! I added spinach to my pomegranate salad with quinoa the next day and it was so yummy! For the dressing I just poured a little bit of rice vinegar and olive oil into the container and it was ready to go. It was super simple to put together. I also topped it with sugared almonds (after the pic), and that seriously added the perfect touch. Try it! I also wrapped up a few wheat crackers in Glad Cling Wrap to go on the side. If you’re sending these containers with your kids to school, add a little sticky note for a personal touch. My mom always added little notes in my lunch and it always made my day. :D Thanks Glad for helping make lunches on the go easier and enjoyable!
