In case you missed it, Carissa and I decided to break our introverted ways and get together for the afternoon. And by get together, we put on our animal onesies and never left my house. That’s as much socializing as we plan to do on our last vacation day before going back to work.
You can catch our live video HERE to see our taste test and virtually “meet” us. It’s most likely the closest we’ll let you get to ever meeting us.
And without further ado, here is the recipe for this delicious green winter salad that was easy to make, delicious and beautiful eye candy.
- Swiss Chard
- Feta crumbles
- Pecan pieces
- Pomegranate seeds
This salad is easy enough, I told Carissa we weren’t even “cooking”. All you have to do is assemble.
Toss together all of the greens into a bowl. It’ll look like this: greens in a bowl.
Now start adding the clementines (which I used 3 and cut each segment into 3 smaller pieces.
Next, add the pecans, or whatever nut you have on hand and would like to use. It’s also a great excuse to not have people over. “Oh sorry, no I can’t have you over tonight, I made a salad with pecans and I know you have a nut allergy.” It makes you considerate, not introverted.
Time for the cheese. The more, the better.
And finally, add the pomegranate seeds, which make the salad BEAUTIFUL and add nice, tart, sweet pop of flavor to the salad.
You can use whatever salad dressing your heart desires, but we decided to make an orange vinaigrette. It was lovely.
All you need for the dressing is:
- Orange juice
- Olive oil
- I used some of the left over pomegranate juice
I of course did not measure anything, this was a total eyeball sort of recipe and it worked out great. Pour some orange juice into a mason jar, add some olive oil, honey, salt and pepper (and leftover pomegranate juice if you have it). Shake it up (take out all your aggression) and give it a nice little taste test. Adjust the salt and pepper as needed. It goes great with this salad.
So there ya have it. A hearty salad that doesn’t feel like boring rabbit food.
Let us know if you want to see more Erica and Carissa with another live video or another onesie party.
And here’s one more picture I’ll leave you with. While I made the salad, Carissa cuddled with Lilly, who was also in an animal onesie (she was the Cheshire Cat, of course.)
