This arugula and pear salad, with pomegranate and goat cheese, is a great way to use the beautiful seasonal fruits and vegetables that are available this time of year. The contrast in this salad between the sweetness of the pear and pomegranate, and the tartness of the goat cheese, is lovely. Try it for the holidays or just for a delicious lunch salad you can take to work.
