Pomegranate, Orange and Arugula Salad with Bleu Cheese & White Balsamic Dressing

Surprisingly the combination of orange and bleu cheese along with pomegranate seeds and the peppery bite of arugula tastes really good together in a salad.


About the recipe

I make lots of salads but I would never think to combine a citrus flavor such as orange with blue cheese – it wouldn’t be a combination that would occur to me. But here it tastes really fabulous. 

This combination of pomegranate fruit, orange and bleu cheese salad is a recipe that was shared by our friend Alicia at a holiday lunch recently.

With a fruity white balsamic dressing, this salad was refreshing as it was pungent from the blue cheese – all somehow complimenting each other wonderfully and deliciously good together. Here is the recipe.
