Colorful Arugula Pomegranate Salad is a bright and flavorful salad loaded with healthy fats and antioxidants.
Pomegranates are loaded with antioxidants like vitamin C and polyphenols, which do wondrous things for your health, such as protecting you from cancer and heart disease as well as acting as an anti-inflammatory to help with arthritis. Eating the whole aril, including the inner seed, will also provide extra fiber.
Pomegranates have been known for its health benefits since ancient times. These bright red fruits are considered a superfood today because of their powerful nutrition and antioxidants. We look forward to them every Fall.
