Grilled Spicy Sausage Salad with Pomegranate Mint Dressing

This is the perfect lunch salad! It has the sweet (fig), salty, and spicy thing going on that I love. Hope you do too! xo

Serves 4

Pomegranate Mint Dressing


1/3 C Olive Oil
1/4 C White Balsamic Vinegar
3 T Chopped Fresh Mint
3/4 C Pomegranate Seeds or juice, Available in the frozen section at Trader Joe's
1 T Molassas
1 T Ground Cumin
1 Clove Garlic, Minced
2 T Red Onion, Minced
1/2 T Salt
Blend all ingredients with a wand or blender. Set aside until ready to use.


6 Spicy Sausage, Chicken Habanero or your fave
1 Large Red Onion, Sliced Thick
12 C Spring Mix
3/4 C Goat Cheese, Crumbled
10 Dried Figs or 6 Fresh, Quartered
1/4 C Fresh Mint Leaves, Roughly Chopped

Grill sausages and onions. Slice sausages in thick bite size pieces, set aside.
For dried figs, quarter and place in a microwave safe dish, add 2 T water and microwave for 1 minute and cover until ready to use. This will steam the figs and make them soft, yum! Set aside until ready to use.

Assembly:

Spring Mix & Mint mixed together
Sliced Sausage
Red Onion
Goat Cheese
Figs
Top with Dressing
Enjoy!
