Avocado Salad With Pomegranate Drizzle

"This salad was a pleasant surprise, it was light, refreshing and full of flavor. We really enjoyed the way the different flavors and textures blended in this dish to create a tasty salad, nothing was overpowering. The tangy, sweet, rich pomegranate juice really enhanced this dish and pulled it all together."

    Delicious and refreshing salad. I forgot to add the snow peas. I wasn't able to get my hands on pomegranate seeds, so subbed in some dried cranberries. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game. :)

    What a wonderful salad! Now that I write the review, I could already eat it again, it was so utterly delicious. The pomegranate dressing and the grapefruit went so well with the bitterness of the arugula and the mild avocado. Absolutely a keeper! Thanks for this brillant idea!<br/>Made for RSC #18

    Wonderful! The dressing is WOW.....so very delicious. The pomegranate juice with the red pepper flakes and other ingredients came together so well. I couldn't find pomegranate seeds so I left it out and used all arugula for the salad as that is what I had on hand. I can't say enough good things about this salad and especially the dressing!!
