Romaine Salad with Pears, Pomegranate and Pistachios
This Thanksgiving was a tough one for me. It was the first Thanksgiving I ever had without my dad. It’s been 4 weeks since he passed and it still feels like he just kissed me goodnight yesterday.To honor him I made a salad with one of his favorite things. Pistachios. Here is a recipe for a Pomegranate, Pistachio and Pear Salad.
First start by chopping up your romaine lettuce. Wash it and then spin it in a salad spinner.
Then chop up all fruits and vegetables.
Add each item one at a time in your desired fashion until it looks the way you want it to look.
Finally toss it all together and use Marzetti simply dressed pomegranate dressing.
