Best of Pure Green | Pomegranate Green Salad

This recipe is so simple but it's incredibly delicious. The richness of the avocado paired with the tangy parmesan and tart crunch of the pomegranate seeds is exquisite. If you're hosting any holiday parties and need a side dish to impress but that takes no time at all to prepare, this salad is the perfect choice. Of course, it doesn't hurt that it has a little festive colouring either! Enjoy, and as always, we'd love your feedback if you try it out!



1 head of organic green leaf lettuce

½ pomegranate, seeded

1 organic avocado

2 organic green onions

fresh parmesan cheese, shaved to garnish


2oz. avocado oil (or raw olive oil),

2oz. white balsamic vinegar

1Tbsp. dried dill

½ tsp. fleur de sel, herbamare, or mineral sea salt


Wash, dry and tear lettuce into a bowl. Slice green onion and add along with pomegranate seeds.  Half the avocado and spoon out chunks or slice and add to salad. 

Whisk together the ingredients for dressing. Pour over salad and toss. Shave parmesan over top for garnish. Serve and add fresh cracked pepper to taste. 

Tip: In the summer substitute blueberries for pomegranate and sprinkle a few toasted sunflower seeds for crunch.  Makes a nice summer meal.
