POM-mond Feta Salad

No Dinner is complete without a Salad, however I am really into the K.I.S.S (keep it simple stupid) style of Salads; I hate it when I find the kitchen sink in a leaf of lettuce. This salad is simple but delicious, the creaminess of the sheep's feta and the nice textual elements from the pom arils and almonds really work well together. I made this salad for 8, please use your discretion for the amount and measurements you want.

What you need:
Field Greens
Toasted and chopped Almonds
Pomagranate Arils
Valbreso or any Sheep's Milk Feta 
POM Wonderful Juice
Walnut Oil
squeeze of brown mustard
dash of Apple cider vinegar

Step 0: Toast and chop raw almonds, set aside.

Step 1: Rinse and place greens in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2: Add Almonds, Feta and Arils to greens. Sprinkle with pepper.

Step 3: make vinaigrette by adding 1/4-1/2 C. POM Juice, cider vinegar, and mustard into a bowl, then whisk in EVOO and Walnut Oil (equal parts about 1-2 T ea.). Finish with S&P and add to salad.

Step 4: Give the Salad a toss and serve on plates.
