"Love the vinaigrette! Very light and refreshing. I substituted dried cranberries for the pomegranates, as they were out of season. This recipe is a keeper!"

"I was a little unsure about making this salad because I've never had a pomegranate seed, but it turned out absolutely awesome. Everyone loved it and had seconds. The dressing is so tasty - this salad will be a regular!"
