Summer Strawberry + Pomegranate Salad

Summer is upon us, can I get a whoop whoop?! One of my favorite things about summer is the simplicity of throwing together a delicious salad that takes hardly any time to prepare so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time outside doing the summer things you love. This salad combines the sweetness of strawberries and pomegranates with homemade strawberry balsamic vinaigrette and marries it with the savoriness of a traditional salad to make this salad one of your new summer favorites.
