Pear and Pomogranate Salad With Apple Cider Dressing | Quick Summer Meals

Pear is a common fruit found throughout the year. While there are the indian and imported varieties, I am personally fond of this low sugar fruit – the burst of mild sweetness combined with the juicy flavor makes it a on-the-go snack too, especially after a workout.  This salad today with fruits came about after my elder kid came back from school after a long sports practice at school, and wanted to have a quick snack, but no cooked stuff.

I pretty much added all that I had in my refrigerator, and it was a great salad to tuck into. So here goes - Pear and Pomogranate Salad With Apple Cider Dressing...

Addition / deletion of any of the other stuff here is totally optional – see what works for your family :) The next time on I am sure to add some more nuts to give it an added crunch and texture.

This goes to Harini’s Fruits Theme – Kids Delight, event by Valli, and also to Blogging Marathon.

Prep time : 10 mins, zero cook, serves : 2
  • Pear – 1 large – cubed without peeling
  • Boiled corn – ¼ cup
  • Shredded red cabbage – a handful
  • Pomogranate pearls – 2 handfuls
  • Chopped dried figs - 1 TBSP
  • Chopped mint leaves - few (opt.) 

Dressing :
  • Apple Cider vinegar – ½ TBSP
  • Salt and pepper  - to taste
  • Olive oil – ½ tsp

  1. Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for 15 mins minimum. (I used previously chilled veggies and fruits and served it immediately).
  2. Whisk all the ingredients of the dressing.
  3. Just before serving, add dressing to the salad, toss well and serve immediately.
