POM Spinach, Tangerine and Fennel Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

Time to Table: 20 Minutes Prep, 30 Minutes Marinating

Servings: 4 Main Dish Servings and ⅔ Cup Dressing

¼ cup arils from 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate or POM POMS fresh pomegranate arils
⅓ cup olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon honey
teaspoon black pepper
⅛ teaspoon cinnamon

Juice from 2-3 large POM Wonderful Pomegranates*, or 1 cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
3 tangerines
cup granulated sugar (optional)
4-5 cups fresh spinach leaves
1 cup thinly sliced fennel
1 cup thinly sliced red onion

Fennel ferns

Score 1 fresh pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate under water to free the arils (seed sacs). The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl. Reserve cup of the arils from fruit and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.)
Prepare fresh pomegranate juice.*
Peel and section tangerines.
Place tangerines in a bowl with 1 cup pomegranate juice and sugar if desired. Allow to marinate 30 to 45 minutes.
