Who else is fully embracing the Christmas season?!Ā šŸŽ„šŸ™‹šŸ»Ā This is my favorite time of the year and we are just loving it! I have already inundated you with dessertĀ recipes, and the chocolatey, sugary goodness is far from finished. However, today I’m bringing you a healthier holiday recipe that showcases my favorite winter produce item…pomegranates!

To me, salad is a must-have side dish at any and every gathering where a meal is involved. It ensures that no matter what someone’s dietary restrictions may be, there will be something for them to eat. ThisĀ Pomegranate Vinaigrette is the perfect homemade salad dressing for your winter salads! It’s packed with fresh pomegranate seeds and a dash of lemon juice, giving it a sweet and tangy flavor! ThisĀ Pomegranate Vinaigrette is gluten, dairy & refined sugar free! And it’sĀ paleo and vegan, Ā so it’s perfect for any and every person who will dine at your table this season! Oh, and did I mention thatĀ it’s ready in 5 minutes or less!

When I say that pomegranates are our favorite winter produce item I am not exaggerating. Recently, we bought 3 cases of poms from Costco…and ateĀ them all within two weeks. I am well awareĀ that the thing that keeps most people from buying pomegranates is how much work they are to deseed {and consequently eat}. Well this video called The Fastest Way to De-Seed a Pomegranate changed my life. I literally can have 6Ā giant pomegranates ready to eat in under 10 minutes thanks to this method! Plus, if I’m having a bad day whacking a pomegranate as hard as I can with a wooden spoon is a great way to let out all sorts ofĀ emotions! šŸ˜‰

This recipe is super straight forward. Just toss everything in your Vitamix {or other high powered blender} and blend away! Salad dressing is aĀ condiment that I always make at home…because it’s SO easy! Plus, by ditching store-bought varieties you will know exactly what is in yourĀ dressings {and be able to pronounce all the ingredients}, which is always a great thing!

ThisĀ Pomegranate Vinaigrette is packed full of nutrition! Don’t negate the health benefits of a giant bowl of green goodness by loading it with unhealthy dressing! Making your own dressing is a great way toĀ nourish your body before loading it full of Christmas cookies!
