I actually have a love hate relationship with pomegranates. They are so good, but I really hate deseeding them. There are lots of tricks to getting the arils out easily and it really isn’t that hard, but I am lazy sometimes…ok, most of the time. So if you don’t want to mess with getting the seeds out, you can just buy the seeds. Most stores sell just the seeds, which is genius!

Next, I drizzle a simple citrus dressing over the top and dig in! This salad is colorful, fresh, and so delicious. I seriously can’t stop making it! I love the juicy little bursts of joy from the pomegranate jewels. The citrus and avocado combo is spot on too!

If you can’t find pomegranate seeds, you can use dried cranberries. They would be good too!

Get your greens on and make this healthy Pomegranate, Orange, and Avocado Salad. It is my favorite!

Ingredients

For the Salad:

  • 8 cups mixed salad greens
  • cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 small oranges peeled and sliced
  • 1 large avocado or 2 small avocados pit removed and sliced
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

For the Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine or white balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Coarse salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place the greens in a large bowl. Top with pomegranate seeds, orange slices, avocado slices, and crumbled feta cheese.
  2. To make the dressing, combine olive oil, vinegar, orange juice, lemon juice, lemon zest, and honey in a small bowl or jar. Whisk until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Drizzle dressing over the salad and serve.
  4. Note-the dressing recipe makes a lot, which is nice so you can make this salad multiple times. Cover and store the dressing in the refrigerator. I like to keep it in a jar so I can shake before using and add it to my salad. It will keep for up to 2 weeks.

  1. awesome colors in this salad!
    TJ’s out here in CA has both organic
    and non-org. pom seeds, if you need a short cut once in awhile.
    🙂
    loved the dressing on this. happy weekend…&
    thanks.

  2. I had an avocado around (yay!), so I made this for dinner last night. What a beautiful and colorful salad! The flavors came together perfectly, leaving my taste buds very happy. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Does anyone know if you can freeze pomegranate arils? I can’t seem to use up a whole pomegranate’s worth before they spoil.

  4. Didn’t have pomegranate seeds so used dried cranberries and subbed blue cheese for feta.  Still delicious.  Many comments on the flavor of the dressing.  A keeper


  5. I made this the other day because my MIL had given me a couple of avocados and a pomegranate.  It was so good, we had it again the next night!  Thank you for a delicious recipe.

    I used several kinds of oranges, for variety of color, and I omitted the lemon juice and just used orange juice instead.  I love orange in my salad,, so I used about 4 of them, and two avocados.  I forgot to use zest.  And I’m not a big fan of feta cheese, so I used chabis instead.  It was really, really good.
