Spinach Salad with Pomegranate Dressing

It's the combination of beauty and texture that makes this Spinach Salad with Pomegranate Dressing both pleasing to the eye and palate. Crisp, fresh spinach leaves, vibrant ruby red pomegranate seeds and crunchy croutons round out this recipe. As it's my custom not to eat nuts during the high holiday season I add a handful of toasted or candied walnuts at other times throughout the year.
