My favorite holiday green salad features a festive mix of seasonal ingredients and a delicious shallot vinaigrette.


  • 10 ounces greens (I used half arugula, half little gems)
  • 1 apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium fennel bulb, very thinly sliced
  • 1 medium pomegranate (about 1.5 to 2 cups arils), separated
  • 1 cup walnut halves, roughly chopped and toasted
  • 2/3 cup shaved Parmesan cheese, separated
  • 1 batch shallot vinaigrette


  1. Toss the salad. Combine the greens, apple, avocado, fennel, half of the pomegranate arils, walnuts, and half of the Parmesan in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle evenly with the shallot vinaigrette and toss gently until evenly combined.
  2. Serve. Serve immediately, garnished with the remaining pomegranate arils and Parmesan and a few twists of freshly-ground black pepper. Enjoy!
