Snowflake Christmas Salad

Not every holiday dish has to be sweet to be special! This beautiful salad graced our table last Christmas Eve. Look at those snowflakes. Such a special touch. They are cut from jicama slices. I happened to own a set of tiny snowflake cookie cutters. It is not too late to buy some!

Loved this idea from Bakin’ Bit so much that I put my own little spin on it for the Marshall Christmas dinner. I made it extra special with Champagne dressing. I also lightened it up a bit by leaving off a couple of ingredients my boys don't care for. No avocados and no nuts. Go ahead and add them if you like.

Snowflake Christmas Salad

1/2 small jicama
1 package spring mix salad greens
6 tbsp Girard’s Light Champagne Vinaigrette Dressing*
1/4 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds

Slice jicama into 1/8 inch slices. Use small cookie cutter to cut 20 snowflake shapes. Use remaining
jicama for another recipe. Toss greens with dressing. Divide greens among 4 serving bowls. Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese, pomegranate seeds and jicama snowflakes.

Drizzle with Champagne Vinaigrette.

* This dressing is light, yet sophisticated. If you can’t find it in your area, try the Trader Joe’s version
or make your own with Champagne vinegar.

Keep checking back in. I will be posting some more holiday favorites. In the mean time, Happy Hanukkah.
