A tasty salad for Rosh Hashanah!
Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 4
  • 6-8 cups arugula
  • ½ red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 4 Medjool dates, diced
  • 1 pear, cut into slices
  • 8 oz Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  1. First, cut the pomegranate into four pieces. You may want to do this over a cutting board or bowl as it will leak a bit.
  2. Then put the pieces in a bowl of cold water and pull out the seeds with your hands. The seeds will fall to the bottom and the schmutz will rise to the top!
  3. Then remove the schmutz and drain the water. Ta da!
  4. Now let’s make our dressing. In a small bowl whisk up minced garlic, lemon juice, honey, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Then slowly pour in the olive oil while whisking.
  5. And time to assemble the salad! Put the red onions with the arugula in a bowl and pour in about ¾ of the dressing. Reserve the rest for drizzling.
  6. Put a nice pile of arugula on 4 plates.
  7. Then top each with pears.
  8. Sprinkle on the dates, Gorgonzola cheese and pomegranate seeds.
  9. Drizzle with more dressing and serve!
