I love this salad. The mix of sweet fruit, tart cheese, and sour vinegar is the perfect match.

Serves 4

1 pear, thinly sliced

1 sweet apple, cored and thinly sliced

2 apricots, pitted and thinly sliced

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1⁄2 pomegranate, just the seeds

1 bunch watercress

1⁄2 cup toasted pecans

1 cup crumbled goat cheese

2  tablespoons rice vinegar

3  tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Place the pears, apples, and apricots in a bowl and drizzle the lemon juice overtop. This will help them from turning dark.
  2. Place in a large serving bowl with pomegranate, watercress, pecans, and goat cheese.
  3. Drizzle rice vinegar and oil overtop and season with salt and pepper.


Perfect with grilled chicken or shrimp, but goes great with any BBQ.
