Healthy Recipe: Green Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette and Goat Cheese

May 5, 2014

We’re cooking with tea this week and kicking off with this springtime fresh green salad recipe. Did you ever think to use herbal tea to create a tasty vinaigrette? Our friends at Bigelow Tea created this sweet and tangy salad recipe using their Pomegranate Pizzazz Tea. Bigelow uses natural flavors derived from fruits or spices....nothing else! We love that! Pair this salad with a healthy bowl of their Mint Medley Tabouleh Salad with Feta, Cucumber and Olives to create the perfect Meatless Monday meal!
