I always vow to curb holiday excess; to eat lighter, healthier fare each new year. What I refuse to give up on, though, are the brightness and good cheer that belong to the December season. This refreshing salad is a nod to both health and holidays. It features pomegranates, which are Persephone’s food—jewel-like winter kernels, bursting with antioxidants—and pairs them with other super-nutrients that will satisfy your resolutions: spinach, oranges, and walnuts. Pomegranates also play an important role in Greek New Year’s customs; gently tossed at the threshold of a home, their spilling seeds indicate prosperity for the coming year. Popping with color, playing with texture, this salad anticipates the joyful, springtime reunion of Persephone and Demeter. Add some excellent feta and a dressing of olive oil and pomegranate molasses, and you’ve got a meal that any mother would approve of.
