Pomegranate-Bacon Arugula Salad

I have been craving salads a lot lately. To mix things up a little bit, I pursued lists of seasons vegetables and fruits to find something we do not normally eat. I came across pomegranates. After a little more research, I learned that they are actually most commonly harvested October through February; but sometimes the harvest is earlier or later. Still, I couldn’t resist looking for them at the store and, just as I had hoped, the international market had them.

This is a fairly simple salad, but it packs of lot of flavor. In fact, it has all five basic tastes: bitter, salty, sour, sweet, and umami. It’s light but satisfying, and beautiful, too! We hope you will enjoy it.
