Thanksgiving Salad - Dash Of Mandi

This bright, fall salad has all the fresh flavors of the season that I love. Fresh pomegranate seeds, crisp pear, candied pecans (YUM), creamy brie, and the most delicious maple balsamic vinaigrette all on top of a bed of spring mix. This salad is perfect for any Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner party. When I made this the other day, my husband and I devoured the whole thing. This will definitely be a holiday season staple for us.
