This Pomegranate, Apple and Date Salad is perfect for Rosh Hashana, or any holiday! It’s beautiful, tasty and very easy to make; the perfect complement to many meals.

Not only is this salad delicious and simple, but it’s packed with nourishing ingredients as well…

Pomegranates are a great source of antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E. They also have high levels of folic acid.

Dates are rich in calcium, iron and potassium as well as a number of other vitamins and minerals. Not only are they  a great source of fiber in your diet, they help satisfy that sweets craving!

Walnuts are high in potassium, calcium and magnesium and are a wonderful way to get some omega-3 fats in your diet.

Tip:  Add grilled chicken breast, tofu slices, fish or grain of choice on top to make it a full meal.
