Avocado and Pomegranate Frisée Salad Recipe

Frisée, quite possibly the fluffiest source of vitamin C, fills out this healthy salad, but avocado and pomegranate are truly the stars. Pomegranate seeds burst with antioxidants, potassium and both vitamins C and K. Plus, these little gems give the dish some crunch. Avocados are an excellent source of carotenoids and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, but they also boast many anti-inflammatory benefits, like aiding in digestion. Whip up this salad recipe for a quick afternoon snack or to whet your appetite before dinner.
