mixed greens with clementine, almond and pomegranate seeds
4 cups or so mixed greens, rinsed and dried well
time 5 minutes
* You can often find pomegranate seeds at Trader Joes. Alternatively, if you find a whole pomegranate, you can get the seeds out yourself. It’s a little bit of work, but kinda fun. About.com has a handy picture tutorial.
1 Make the dressing: combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk well. Set aside.
2 In a dry skillet, toss the almonds. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until lightly browned. Slide the toasted almonds into a bowl.
3 Wash and thoroughly dry your greens. Peel the clementine, removing as much of the stringy white bits as possible. Separate the sections. Now use a sharp paring knife to gently remove the membrane from each section; you might find you need to leave a little bit along the “spine” to help keep the shape intact.
4 Give your dressing another good whisk. Now toss the greens with as much dressing as needed to coat well; taste and add more salt if needed. Divide the greens across two plates; top with clementine sections, pomegranate seeds and sliced almonds.
