Arame Citrus Salad with Pomegranate Dressing




This simple, elegant, salad is bursting with flavor and happiness. And flavor is what makes up this arame citrus salad with pomegranate dressing!

When it comes to salads, it’s about choosing seasonal ingredients that can upgrade your basic salad into something unique. I am always an advocate of adding color, texture and bold flavors to any salad. This particular salad recipe not only has a contrast of all the above but you are also getting your daily dose of nutrients. The oranges provide vitamin C, the arame provides iodine and other trace minerals, avocado gives the salad a boost of healthy fats, and the pomegranate juice is loaded with antioxidants. I’d say this is a salad worth making any time of year!

Arame is a sea vegetable that is loaded with calcium and other minerals such as magnesium, iron, and iodine. It is subtle, soft, and stringy and makes a wonderful condiment for soups, salads, stir-fry’s, sandwiches, or wraps.
