For the salad:
2 Comice pears
4 cups fresh mixed greens, washed and checked
2 cups pomegranate seeds
1 bunch finely diced scallions
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
½ pound smoked turkey breast, sliced thin and cut in strips
For the pomegranate vinaigrette:
3/4 cup finely chopped shallots
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
Core the pears and slice thinly. Sprinkle with a lemon juice. Place in a large salad bowl. Add mixed greens and pomegranate seeds.
Whisk together shallots, salt, freshly-ground pepper, wine vinegar and pomegranate juice in a small bowl. Add oil in a thin stream, continuing to whisk until thoroughly combined. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.
Divide the salad among four plates. Toss the turkey slices with a little vinaigrette. Arrange the turkey strips on the salad. Sprinkle with diced scallions and sliced almonds. Grind a little fresh black pepper on each salad. Serve at once.
