Pear, Pomegranate, Spinach Salad

I know I have said this before, but I can't stress enough how much better homemade dressing is. Tonight I topped this festive pear, pomegranate, and spinach salad with an apple cider vinegar, honey, dijon mustard concoction and it was delightful! It's not too late to add this salad to your holiday menu!

P.S. you can find my OXO Salad Dressing Shaker for under $10 at Target, Williams Sonoma, Sur La Table, or Kohl's. It is the perfect holiday gift idea if your new years resolution involves adding more greenery to your diet.  I hope you love it as much as I do!

Dressing Ingredients:

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons EVOO
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
