Great! This salad is bright, crisp and fresh! The dressing is tad tart. To remedy this I recommend using the zest and juice of only 1/2 lemon and adding 2 Tbsp. honey to the dressing. Some chopped walnuts rounded out the salad nicely. This salad would go great with holiday dinners since pomegranates are in season then.

This dressing is good but I did not care for it on this salad. I think it would compliment the salad to have a sweeter dressing. I will experiment with different dressings. I waited for others to voice their opinions and we all agreed with a sweet dressing this would be aces.

I made this last night for family and friends. Everyone loved it. I hate when people change the recipe, but it was REALLY tart, so I doubled everything but the lemon juice and zest when making the dressing. A very different salad! It was time consuming getting the seeds out of the pomegranate, be careful not to squirt on good clothes....I think the juice stains.

I didn't make the salad, but I am rating the recipe for the dressing. I wanted a lemon vinaigrette to marinate some blanched, chilled asparagus. It was delicious! I don't know about the "too tart" that other reviewers mentioned, it didn't seem that way to me. I guess it could depend on the size of the lemon and the quality of the vinegar could vary too. I loved the fresh taste the lemon zest brought to the dressing.

I have been making this salad for many years and it is always a hit and the recipe is requested too many times to mention BUT the only exception to my recipe is that I use 2 tablespoons of maple syrup,1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar and 1/2 tsp of oregano same amount of dijon and olive oil. the feta is reduced to 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup of toasted pine nuts.Try it you will like it alot!

This salad is DELICIOUS. I used fresh spinach with chopped romaine lettuce instead of the packaged bag greens. I also added a little more olive oil and salt to the vinagarette because it was a little too tart when I tasted it. It also seemed to make an awful lot, so I didn't pour the entire amount on. Pomegranates were out of season when I made this, so I used sliced fresh peaches instead, and it worked wonderfully. The salad was a HUGE hit at my mom's birthday dinner, and everyone went back for second helpings!

After getting the pomegranate seeds out, the salad is super easy. The amount of lemon (1/2 or full) really depends on how juicy yours are. I had juicy lemons and used half a lemon and tested the taste and like it that way. If you have lemons that aren't very juicy 1 full one would probably be right.

I threw in some sliced red onion and twice as much pomegranate seeds and feta. my family loved it
