Replace strawberry preserves with either real strawberries, or raspberties, and whirl it in a small food processor or a blender, or use a stick blender.
I like this recipe. Here are some suggestions I'd make: I used goat cheese. It was delicious but a bit too smooth for this salad. Consider a nice hard blue cheese for a balance of textures. Chop the apple after slicing so pieces are no larger than 1"x1". This size is more manageable for individual bites. Sprinkle the pomegranate after serving. When I tossed the salad, all the pomegranate fell to the bottom, so the first serving had hardly any and the last had way too many. I added about 4 oz of cooked chicken as part of a meal plan. This vastly improved the meal as a whole.
This one was so easy to make and incredibly good. Great combo of flavors and the whole family like it.
So good. This is a winter staple in our house.
