In our area, olives, walnuts, pomegranates and oranges are grown locally, and I love using them in recipes. I include all four ingredients in a simple but refreshing romanine salad. —Faith Sommers, Bangor, California

"What a delicious recipe! I did cut the recipe in half for the two of us and substituted pecans for the walnuts. We really enjoyed this salad and I'll definitely be making it again!"
