Delightfully light salad, especially for a ladies' brunch or lunch date.

Delicious although it seems to have a lot going on. I think the bosc pear could be left out and it would be fine. I added some extra freshly squeezed orange juice in place of the pomegranate juice. I used cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, organic apple cider vinegar, sea salt, fresh clementine sections in place of the canned mandarin, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for January's Tag Game ~ Nueces ~ Nuts, in the Spain & Portugal forum.
