Tomorrow is the big day! Is everyone ready? I sure hope so. We are still without plans, but don’t worry about us, we are excited to have a relaxing day. I am sure we will cook up something tasty, it just won’t be the traditional feast.
If you need a last minute salad idea, I have a great one to share. I made this Spinach Salad with Oranges, Pomegranate, and Almonds for our Thanksgiving meal and it went over really well. I bought a big tub of fresh spinach from Costco. I added orange slices, pomegranate arils, and almonds. For the dressing, I whisked together olive oil, POM juice, red wine vinegar, fresh orange juice, a little agave, salt, and pepper.
The salad was gorgeous! I love the color the pomegranate and orange slices add. The almonds provided a nice little crunch too. The dressing was light and added just enough sweetness to the mix. Wow your family and friends with this salad tomorrow!
Have a very happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I bet you and your hubby will cook up something unexpected and yummy!
I love spinach salads with citrus. What a nice, light change from the heavy food of the holidays.
Have a great Turkey Day, Maria!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
The colors in this salad are gorgeous! Have a wonderful day!
Nice salad for a refreshing change of pace. Love the beautiful contrast in colors. Happy Thanksgiving!
I made a very similar salad and dressing not too long ago. I love the combination of orange and pomegranate. I'm sure this was delicious! And it's such a light, refreshing start to the Thanksgiving meal.
Hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving!!
What a pretty salad! Love the addition of Pomegranate!
What a gorgeous salad!!
I love Pomegranate this time of year. I made stuffing with Pomegranate for Thanksgiving last year. This salad sounds great.
Ok, this is going on my 'after thanksgiving recover food' list! How fresh and pretty!
This looks beautiful and delicious! Love the idea of using the pomegranate, it is so pretty!
Hey congrats on being on the newspaper, I can only dream! I love the salad I use spinach and mandarins but I love your additions!
Just my kind of salad. However, my husband is strongly against any fruit in his salad. That just means I have to make mine separate (he eats a lot of salad!), but this looks fab and I've been eating pomegranates like crazy (just made a choc/POM bundt cake!). I will for sure make the dressing and put some POMs and oranges on my salad.
Happy Day Off no matter what you do! 😉
Have a wonderful holiday, Maria. Congratulations of being featured in the paper. Your salad is just beautiful. Blessings…Mary
Love the idea for the dressing. Pomegranate seeds make such a great salad topping.
