As you know, my Eat Beautiful approach to diet is all about eating fresh, organic, seasonal produce. And this pomegranate salad recipe from my book is such a quick and easy healthy lunch option, I turn to it again and again at this time of year. Aside from providing a host of nutritional benefits, pomegranate seeds are a brilliant addition to salads because of the cheerful splash of colour and added crunch they provide. Follow my pomegranate salad recipe below, and pack into boxes for a few days’ lunches so you can skip the sandwiches this spring…
