Ingredients
    For the salad:

  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1 pomegranate, seeded
  • 50 grams pine nuts
  • For the dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 0.5 teaspoons salt
  • 0.5 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 0.25 cups extra virgin olive oil
  • (Optional: ½ small onion, grated)
Instructions
    For the dressing:
  1. In a bowl combine vinegar, salt, and mustard. If you choose to use onion, grate it and add it to the mix. After the ingredients are well blended, pour in the olive oil and mix well again. You can prepare this dressing day or two in advance and store it in the refrigerator.

  2. For the salad:
  3. First extract pomegranate seeds (see how to do it easily). Drain in a strainer or colander.

  4. Thoroughly wash and pat dry lettuce leaves. In a serving bowl tear lettuce leaves. Add drained pomegranate seeds. Cut apples into thin wedges and add to the lettuce.

  5. Drizzle the dressing on top and toss carefully. Sprinkle the pine nuts over the salad.

    Serve immediately.
