Spinach salad with pomegranate seeds, pears, and prosciutto

While I think pear and prosciutto go together so well as an appetizer that you don’t really need to add anything else, in this recipe I did add pomegranate seeds and spinach to create an actual salad. This salad could be served before dinner; it could be one of the appetizers on your table; or you could have it for lunch.

I am still recovering from my 10 days of travel, so this post will be brief and about fresh and healthy ingredients – exactly what I need after eating out for 10 days.

The salad dressing is simply olive oil with melted honey and balsamic vinegar and the end result is a wonderful, healthy salad full of anti-oxidants.
