Cooking Instructions:

In large glass salad bowl, carefully layer arugula, shaved fennel, red onion, spinach and chèvre, separating the layers and ensuring that the different colours are apparent against the glass. You may need to use the spinach to fi ll in the centre of the bowl. Sprinkle pomegranate seeds and walnut pieces on top. Can be refrigerated up to 8 hours before dressing and serving.

MAKES: about 1 cup

Place all ingredients in jar with tight fi tting lid; shake until dressing is well mixed and slightly emulsifi ed or thickened. Refrigerate for 3-4 days. Seeds from 3 pomegranates make approximately 1-cup juice.

Korey's Tip
You can use store bought Pom juice in a pinch but making your own is fresh
and easy.

Step 1: separate seeds in a bowl of water. Step 2: pulse seeds in food processor. Step 3: over a wide bowl, squeeze juice from seeds using a strainer and back of a wooden spoon.
