Salads are like an opening act. They are a precursor to the main event and are usually not that exciting. The audience patiently waits for the salad course to be over to get to see the star of the show. This is usually the case, however, last week I catered a dinner party and this salad was a showstopper!
This salad burst onto the tables and the beautiful colors made it a hit before the guests even tasted it! The combination of flavors and textures is another reason why this salad is so good. The peppery arugula, bright citrus, sweet pomegranate, crunchy hazelnuts, and salty bite from the parmesan cheese work in perfect harmony together.
