  • ¼ of a red onion; thinly sliced
  • ½ cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • ¼-1/2 cup pecan pieces

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
  1. Combine pomegranate molasses, lemon juice, honey and vinegar in a mixing bowl and whisk to mix thoroughly. Slowly drizzle in olive oil while continuing to whisk. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Toss salad ingredients together and dress with vinaigrette.
