Seeds from 1 pomegranate

Vegan Caprese Candy Cane Salad
We love this vegan version of our festive Caprese Candy Cane Salad by Edith Agoston.
2 cups Fresh Express® Baby Spinach
2 cups butter leaf lettuce
1/4 red onion
1/4 of a pomegranate seeds
1 Roma tomato
Vegan mozzarella (just enough to rotate between cheese and tomato slices for the candy cane)
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon sea salt
The juice of one lemon
1/2 cup water
Add everything to a small high speed blender and blend until smooth.
Arrange all ingredients but vegan mozzarella and tomato on an oval plate and mix with the dressing.
Start making the festive arrangement by placing one slice of mozzarella cheese and one tomato slice in a row to create a candy cane shape on top of the salad.
Sprinkle with pomegranate arils and serve!
