Christmas Salad

Recipe of the Month: Christmas Salad


  • Spinach, broccoli greens, kale (I usually allow 1 large handful of greens per person- the variety is up to
  • ½ Cup Feta cheese
  • ½ cup Pomegranate seeds
  • 1 Red onion sliced into rings
  • 1 Hakurei turnip (chopped into small cubes)
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ – ½ cup orange blossom honey


  • Wash the greens and cut into bite sized pieces and put in salad bowl
  • Top with the pomegranate seeds, onion slices, chopped turnip, and feta cheese
  • Whisk the lime juice, vinegar, olive oil and honey together. Hint – if you measure the olive oil first and then the honey, the honey will slide out of the measuring cup very easily.
  • Sprinkle just enough dressing on salad to wet everything and toss! Any extra dressing can be saved for tomorrow’s salad.


Hakurei turnips can be eaten raw or cooked – not what you think of when you think turnips) These may be difficult to find- but well worth the search.  I get them from a girl at a farmer’s market.

Save the rest of the pomegranate seeds for your morning juice drink or another salad
