Pomegranate salad with orange balsamic glaze~ a Lean and Green recipe

Who says salad has to be boring?  Even when it is a lean and green, medifast recipe! With this decadent, but oh-so-easy combination of flavors, you’ll never look at greens the same way again.  The tangy, heart-healthy pomegranate is simply sprinkled over the top of the salad and then everything is gently tossed in a ridiculously luscious orange balsamic dressing (again, so easy to make!)

6 C       baby greens (here I use mesclun mix)

1/4 C   pomegranate seeds*

2 T       Stacey Hawkins Valencia Orange Oil

2 T       Stacey Hawkins Balsamic Mosto Cotto

1 tsp    dijon mustard

pinch   Stacey Hawkins Dash of Desperation seasoning


Place all ingredients except the greens and pomegranate in a large bowl.  Whisk for 1 minute until thick.  Add greens and pomegranates to the bowl and, using tongs, toss the dressing to coat the salad.

Lean and Green portions:  1 cup of salad is 1 green, 1 healthy fat and 2 condiment options 

Pom seeds net out to about 1 T per serving and are 9 calories and 1g of carbs therefore qualifying them as 1 condiment

Make AMAZING Lean and Green meals, with little to no effort!
