The perfect salad for winter packed with colours and festive flavours.

If you wanted something a little more substantial it works well with grilled chicken breast too.

Apple works as a great substitute for pomegranate which does taste brilliant but can work out quite expensive.


  • half pomegranate (seeds and juice)
  • 10 pecans roughly snapped
  • 50g stilton or blue cheese of your choice crumbled
  • mixed leaves (my favourite at the moment is the bistro bag from Sainsbury’s because of the beetroot which is especially delicious for this)
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • grilled chicken breast (optional)

Put leaves in a bowl.

Sprinkle with cheese, pecans and chicken if desired and toss together.

In a separate bowl put vinegar, pomegranate seeds and juice, salt and pepper.

Stir together and drizzle over tossed leaves.
