Spinach Pomegranite Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Pomegranites grow really well here, but surprisingly, I don't know many people who have them in their yards.  I gave my parents one two years ago and it is bearing quite a bit of fruit this year!  There is a gentleman friend of theirs who has many in his orchard and invites us to come help harvest them then take some home.  The only down side to this high antioxidant treat?  It stains--big time!  (Ask me how I know.)
We juice them and freeze the juice to use year round.  Yum!

Spinach Pomegranite Salad

6 c. baby spinach
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
1/4 c. slivered almonds
1/2 c. pomegranite berries

Poppy Seed Dressing

1/3 raw honey
1/3 raw apple cider vinegar
1/4 c. red onion
1/2 tsp. sea salt
2/3 c. cold pressed olive oil
1 tbsp. poppy seeds

Combine salad ingredients.
In a blender, blend all but the olive oil and poppy seeds until smooth.  Turn blender to low and drizzle in olive oil.  Add poppy seeds.  Store left overs in the fridge.
