Pomegranate, Spinach and Arugula Salad with Candied Pecans

This is a nice sweet and savoury salad recipe. It’s a great salad to have over the holidays or just as a tasty side salad with dinner.  The feta cheese and pomegranate make the perfect combination with the baby spinach and arugula greens.

I even added a pomegranate balsamic vinegar to the dressing that took it up a notch for this flavour combination.
