Pomegranate, Radish & Avocado Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

Winter is  creeping up around the corner, I am not looking forward to the end of my weekly trips to the Farmer’s Market.  However, I will try to enjoy it while it lasts.  And this week I picked up organic lettuce & radishes which can be used to make a delicious and flavorful salad. 





 Its healthy, cleansing, nourishing, and a great way to start my week.  Its perfect for a Meat Free Monday lunch! If you need protein feel free to add chicken, fish or shrimp.
