This salad is so ridiculously easy to throw together, yet the presentation is gorgeous and looks beautiful on a holiday table. It compliments any meal but honestly is especially perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

You can hardly call this a recipe and certainly anyone can throw it together. It required very little measuring on my part. We literally just tossed in all the ingredients, arranged them on the platter and were quite pleased by exactly how beautiful it turned out.

It’s just so easy and looks beautiful when served.

Tips and Substitutions

You can substitute any ingredient in this salad or add more or take away ingredients. Here are some suggestions.

  • Lettuce Substitution – Instead of spinach, this can be served on any bed of lettuce from leaf lettuce, iceberg lettuce, romaine or arugula.
  • Pomegranate Substitution – sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, red grapes or even blackberries or any combination of the above.
  • Avocado Substitutions – green grapes, edamame, chickpeas, cucumber or broccoli.
  • Sliced Almonds Substitutions – macadamia nuts, pecans, chopped walnuts
  • Feta Cheese Substitutions – Fresh parmesan, goat cheese, bleu cheese are all great crumbled into this salad.

Salad Dressing Options: Strawberry Basil Syrup makes a great dressing for this salad. Add vinegar to it for more flavor. Also, our red wine raspberry sauce also is absolutely incredible over this and also goes great with desserts.
