Apple and Pomegranate Frisee

I love crisp and light salads of any kind, but I especially love ones studded with fruits like apples and pomegranate. Matt and the boys can never understand how I can just a eat a salad for dinner, but are nearly disgusted when I have a cold salad for breakfast with a cup of hot coffee.


If I were childless, I’m certain my eating habits would be even more out of sync with mainstream. I grew up eating anything from cereal to fish soup for breakfast. I don’t know if it was a cultural thing or a function of my mom being efficient with leftovers vs. the latest coupon clipping. Whatever it was, I grew up not really expecting or making food specific meals—that is until I got married and had kids.

Of course the boys take after Matt, so the other day while they ate egg sandwiches for breakfast, I plated this and we ate in parallel and totally out of sync.
