This is a great holiday salad. It is delicious and looks beautiful served on a platter or big bowl. Pomegranate seeds are so good. I got this recipe years ago from Sunset magazine.

Just served this at a girls only "re-gift" Christmas gift exchange party and it got rave reviews! Make it easy on yourselves though, use jar pomegranate juice and oj. I also tossed in candied walnuts from TJ's, and already shelled seeds. Way easier! Must reduce pomegranate juice for the dressing though! Wonderful recipe!

- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon zest
