Crumbly Blue Cheese and Pomegranate Pita Pockets

This is seriously one of my favorite go-to salads.

Fresh endive, and romaine hearts are chopped up and thrown together with crumbly blue cheese, tangy pomegranates, and toasted pine nuts. Toss it together with a good drizzle of creamy Caesar dressing and it will knock you silly.

Trust me. It works. If you squeeze all of this into a pita pocket it’s the perfect salad to go.

MY OTHER RECIPES

The endive and romaine hearts work perfectly together to give this salad texture and color.

If you can’t get your hands on endive, you can just use more romaine. But try and get the endive… it’s worth it.

See how pretty and colorful it is?

The combination of the pomegranate, blue cheese and pine nuts came to me last year when I made these delicious crostini toppers.  I had some left over topping so I threw it on top of some greens.

BAM!

Instant love.

I toasted the pine nuts this time, and it add so much more dimension and flavor. Totally worth the extra 3 minutes.

The clincher that holds this whole shi-bang together has got to be the dressing.

{I may or may not be a dressing fanatic}

Choose a lite creamy Caesar dressing (my personal fav: Ken’s), then toss all those bad boy ingredients together and stuff a healthy portion into a whole wheat pita pocket.

mmmmm-boy…

If you want to add some shredded chicken breast to the salad, it would be a great way to turn this lunch into a dinner…

just sayin…
