Arugula and Spinach Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette 

This is a great template, for a winter salad. Try mixing up the fruit, nuts and cheese, with whatever you have on hand. It’s also a good salad to take to a potluck, you would still want to add the dressing right before serving, but the hearty greens will hold up for a half hour or so, if needed.

1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced red onion or shallot
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 bunch arugula, washed and chopped
1/2 bunch spinach, washed and chopped
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
1 pear, cubed
1/4 cup crumbled bleu cheese
1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Combine lemon juice, minced onion, salt and olive oil, whisking together in a large bowl. Add in the remaining ingredients and toss to coat everything with the dressing. Adjust the seasoning with salt and fresh ground pepper if needed. Eat right away.
