0 Butter Lettuce, Pomegranate and Walnut Salad

We had my family over for dinner to watch the election
so, of course, I had to serve red, white, and blue food! :-)
This lovely salad comes from the newest cookbook from the Junior League of Houston that I adore!

"With fewer than five ingredients, and a simple vinaigrette, this is a beautiful salad for minimal effort. When pomegranates are out of season, substitute dried cherries or cranberries." ~ Peace Meals

And as far as election night, whether your choice won or lost. . .
"We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon use, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you." Psalms 33:20-22
