Harvest Apple Salad with Pomegranate, Avocado, and Blue Cheese
A fun salad made in an apple! Blue cheese, pomegranate, apple, and avocado come together for the most delicious fall combination.
Have you noticed all the pomegranates dangling from trees lately? Pomegranate seeds add a juicy antioxidant-filled crunch to any dish. Best of all they look like little rubies adorning your plate.
The flavors in this salad are delicious together. And if you’re a bacon-eater, I’d throw some of that in too. It would be amazing. Oh and candied walnuts would be perfect too! Of course you could dump this all on top of some lightly dressed greens, but I thought they were so cute in hollowed out apple “bowls”. Wouldn’t these be lovely for Thanksgiving?
- 1 large apple
- 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1/2 avocado, diced
- 1 Tablespoon crumbled blue cheese
- 1 t apple cider vinegar
- If making apple bowls, slice top off apple. Using an ice cream scoop or spoon, carefully scoop out apple flesh, leaving about 1/4" apple rim. Chop the apple flesh. In a medium bowl, toss apple with pomegranate seeds, avocado, and cheese. Drizzle with a small amount of apple cider vinegar (optional). Carefully spoon mixture back into hollowed apples. If serving with greens, drizzle greens with extra virgin olive oil, more apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper; or your favorite vinaigrette.
