Spinach Arugula Salad with Pomegranate, Blue Cheese and Pistachios

This salad is so simple but so good! You can add beautiful and impressive to its description too! I dress it with a store bought creamy balsamic vinegar dressing (by Okanagan Falls) but I'm sure other dressings will work too.

I love the way the pomegranate seeds burst with their juice inside your mouth, the creaminess of the tangy blue cheese on your tongue and the crunchiness of the pistachios...mmmm.

I've listed amounts in the recipe but really guys, it's a salad. Just put in the amounts you have on hand or whatever feels right.

Serves 6


4 cups spinach leaves
4 cups arugula
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup roasted pistachios (I use salted ones from Trader Joe's)
seeds from 2 medium pomegranates (about 1 cup)
1/3 cup dressing of your choice (more or less depending on your tastes)


Toss everything together. Divide and serve.

Snowman Hershey Kiss Cake - An easy way to decorate a Christmas themed cake!

Candy Cane Hershey Kisses are an easy way to make a cake more festive!

Just wanted to show you an easy way to make a festive cake. Using candy cane Hershey Kisses (tm), a few sprinkles and a candy snowman, I made this three layer, 6 inch cake for the cake walk at the school Christmas Market last week. (The picture isn't very good because I only had my phone to snap a pic!)
