I always love a salad that is quick to toss together. The hardest part of this salad was deseeding the pomegranate, but Costco sells just the seeds making this salad a synch.  Just throw all of the ingredients into a bowl and you will surely make an impression.

The dressing is really vinegary so if you are picky, use a poppy seed dressing. It would be the hit of the meal.
