I love this salad! I have been making it for years on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year that happens each fall (incidentally, around the time pomegranates come in season in the Midwest!). It features several traditional holiday ingredients, including pomegranates, dates, and beets. It's a bit labor intensive and the portion is huge, so I usually reserve it for entertaining and am glad to pull it out the few times a year I make it.
Attractive Healthy dishI enjoyed making the dish almost as much as eating it; and telling everyone how healthy it is. I added halved grapes and well and it worked beautifully.Pros: A feel good dish that only gets better as a day or two goes by.Cons: Takes some effort to put together. I did half the prep the night before and that helped.

Simply wonderful I have already made this twice. Tooki in to a Christmas dinner and everyone was raving. No one could guess what all is in this dish. A definate keeper. Pros: Great combination of flavors Cons: Seeding a pomegranate-buy already seeded
Tasty, healthy, crunchy, tangy a hit! I know, how can it be too healthy? I made this for Thanksgiving and I give this recipe 5 stars. This crunchy side was the perfect compliment to the mashed potatoes and mushy stuffing that these meals have. Most everyone loved it. Kids, not so much. Some felt it was too healthy because of the abundant quinoa, which was a new experience for them. But my diabetic sister-in-law, requested I bring it back for Christmas dinner. If you have people in your family who aren't so health concious (i.e. never heard of quinoa and think kale is an inedible garnish) then they may not try it, but it really tastes great and I ate the leftovers for a snack the rest of the week. Pros: Healthy, colorful, crunchy Cons: May be too healthy for some
