I have not been a fan of the summer season ever. The food that people generally like to eat during this season is something that is very light on the palette, like a salad. But the salad options get too boring at times. The classics like Greek and Caesar salads don’t always work right? After-all, variety is the spice of life. And as I am a foodie myself, I really like variety on my dinner table. Cooking for my family is my another passion. And playing with different ingredients and their flavorful textures, soothes my gastronomic intentions. Salads with loaded dressings just doesn’t work for me. I like to eat a plate full of green goodness that is as tasty as it is rich in nutrients. And fitting the bill, this POMEGRANATE SPINACH SALAD is an ideal summer meal. In addition to it’s great taste, the recipe gets ready in just a few minutes. It’s perfect for a starter at lunch or even as a light dinner if you’re on a weight loss program.
