Fall and winter have some beautiful hearty produce. Things like cherries, pomegranates, fall and winter squashes, all can make a beautiful and hearty salad.
This recipe is a super quick and delicious salad I used to make while I worked at EXOS. Both athlete's and staff would devour this recipe.
If you are not a fan of gorgonzola cheese, feel free to use feta or any other white cheese (or simply eliminate it).
You can also make this recipe super Keto friendly by portioning the quantity of pom seeds you add, making your own mustard vinaigrette (to control the sugar quantity - see recipe below), and adding nuts/seeds, and replacing the quinoa with some cauliflower rice.
Feel free to make this recipe in a jar as well, and use your favorite at hand mixed greens.
