Spinach Salad with Prosciutto, Pears, Pomegranate and Balsamic Dressing. Healthy salad full of anti-oxidants.
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 Spinach Salad with Prosciutto, Pears, Pomegranate - full of anti-oxidants.
Here is the simple Balsamic Dressing, made by combining together olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar:
Prosciutto makes this salad so delicious!
Spinach leaves are coated with Balsamic dressing.

I love how fresh and lean this salad is.
Since I still need to lose several pounds from the holidays, this seems to be a great option for lunch or dinner. As always, beautiful photography!!! xx
The salad is so beautiful with all those colors! I am in love with both pears and pomegranates, but my store didn't have any pomegranates this week. The guy said they were all bad. I'm hoping they aren't out of season quite yet.
Mmm, nothing like a nice fresh salad after eating out for awhile. Looks delicious!
Gorgeous! I don't believe I've ever tried pomegranate seeds and prosciutto together, but love the idea. Really nice and simple salad. And as you say, healthy! Thanks.
Julia..that is GORGEOUS.
I think pears and prosciutto pair perfectly, too! Your salad looks amazing!!!
