This is my all-time favorite salad! I love the combination of flavors and textures, it’s so incredibly delicious and it’s such a good Christmas salad! The festive red pomegranate arils and green arugula ingredients make this the perfect vegan holiday side dish!
The first time that I made this simple salad was for our Christmas dinner a few years ago and my family (especially my mom) fell in love with it!
Now, my family loves this wild rice pomegranate Christmas salad recipe and they request it at every holiday, so I usually end up making it for almost every single family get-together or holiday gathering.
