This salad is sweet, savory, crunchy, and all the wintry feels. It’s seriously one of my new faves, y’all!
A massive shout out to my adorable grandpa (aka Abuelito) for
forcing donating about 1,000 pecans to Cody and I from his little yard. And another massive shout out to the guy we hired to shell these pecans because OMG SO MANY PECANS. Sooooo many, you guys.
Here we are over a year since my grandpa gave them to us, still putting them to good use. How long do they even last? I’m gonna need ALL of your fave pecan recipes, like, right now please and thank you.
About this Pomegranate Pecan Salad w/ Cinnamon Apples. It’s literally everything you see in the title, plus spinach and a little bit of olive oil!
SO easy. I made this thing in about 7 minutes and downed it in about 4 (I know, I know, I should eat slower. But I was running super late to my hair appointment! You do what you gotta do).
For those of you who don’t have a million pecans in your possession at the moment, I recommend buying pre-shelled pecan halves. 😉 It just makes life a little bit easier, ya know? And the same for pomegranate arils. You can buy them ready to eat! I don’t always buy things pre-cut, sliced, or ready to eat, but I definitely go that route when it comes to pomegranate arils!
Have you ever tried removing them yourself? It’s complete madness. Your entire kitchen will be pink. Ok, maybe just mine, but trust me on this one! It’s much easier to buy them ready to eat. 😉
