Ingredients

Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette: 

4 tablespoons fresh Meyer lemon juice (approximately 1 large Meyer lemon)

4 tablespoons good-quality olive oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/2 tablespoon sea salt

1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

Salad:

Fresh lettuce, torn

1 medium pomegranate, shucked

Directions

  1. The simplicity of a fresh salad is one of the hallmarks of our meals. Regardless of what is on the menu, a simple seasonal salad is our favorite way to start the feast. Fresh, crisp lettuce, a bright addition of fruit and tangy vinaigrette is the perfect starter to please the palate. The bright, floral beauty of the Meyer lemon lends perfectly to a vinaigrette. Just a simple squeeze of the yellow fruit and you'll have a terrific dressing for even the simplest of salads.
  2. For the vinaigrette: Combine all vinaigrette ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk together well. 
  3. For the salad: Toss lettuce, pomegranate seeds and vinaigrette together before serving.
