Pear and Pomegranate Salad

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups greens of choice (romaine, spinach, baby green mix)
  • 1 pear, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 ounces crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing
  • 2 chicken breast, cooked and cubed (optional)

Instructions:

Place 2 cups greens on each of two plates.  Divide remaining ingredients to top salads as desired and serve.

Kid Friendly Tip:  If kiddos aren’t much for a big salad combo, serve ingredients individually.  Many kids will love chicken, pear, greens served separately.  Pomegranate seeds are a great food for trying by smelling, licking, touching, and discussing at the dinner table.
