California Winter Salad with Tangerine Dressing

California Winter Salad with Tangerine Dressing

I just love food that coordinates with any holiday theme, so this salad was a no-brainer to create. Vibrant red radicchio and pomegranate paired with tender green spinach creates an easy, festive, and tasty salad to serve at any holiday function you have this year.

The tangy Tangerine Vinaigrette is the perfect compliment to all the bold flavors in the salad, including gorgonzola cheese and toasted pecans.

 

Sliced radicchio

Radicchio is an unexpected addition to the salad that lends a unique peppery flavor. Don’t leave it out! You will not be disappointed.

Pomegranates being added to top the salad

Topping off the salad with ripe, crimson pomegranate arils is the kicker. Since they have a mild crunch, it adds a great texture and interest too!
