Winter's taste of summer salad: pomegranate and pear

See also

It's winter out there, even if it doesn't look like it. Though it's unseasonably sunny outside, the fruits of summer are long since gone, leaving fresh food a little lacking in luster. Crops like lettuce, greens, squash, and potatoes do best in the fall, leaving melons, berries, and pitted fruits for the summer months. That doesn't mean fresh produce has to be boiled or baked in order to be enjoyed. Winter leaves us with some wonderful and refreshing options that give us a taste of summer. This salad, which features red leaf lettuce, pears, and a pomegranate dressing is a delightful departure from the gloom and doom of another potato-based hot soup.
