Seared Scallops with Pomegranate-Cucumber Salad
A quick salad offering delightful contrasts of texture and color

Scallops on top of a Pomegranate-Cucumber Salad

This delightful salad delivers a wonderful contrast between the lusciousness of scallops and the crunch of cucumber and pomegranate seeds.

If you don’t have time to find fresh pomegranate seeds (don’t use dried seeds), either online or in a store, you can substitute pine nuts or crumbled walnuts.
