Great healthy salad to bring to any potluck

I have made this salad 3 times now and each time different. I never used the beets but did use butternut squash instead. Made a very nice looking salad. Use the hints on peeling the pomegranate to not make a mess.

Healthy and very pretty presentation
My new favorite fall side dish

Salads and side dishes are usually so boring, but ths one really stands out. You can also make all the components a day or two ahead of time and then assemble at the last minute. I omitted the beets because not everyone likes them, and added walnuts as another reviewer suggested.

beautiful colors, variety of textures and very flavorful
Work intensive, but worth it!

This is a great recipe, and well worth the work of seeding the pomegranate, roasting the beets and segmenting the orange. I would leave the dates out in the future - I love dates but in this dish, they ended up pasty and the flavor did not mesh well with the other fresh flavors. Will definitely make this recipe again!

Delicious, healthy, filling
This is a wow dish!!!

I followed this recipe to the tee and it turned out great! It will be a wonderful addition to my recipes!! I think I might try adding walnuts.

It is healthy and delish,
