Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Pair this delicious side salad with your favorite cooked lean meat, fish or poultry.
Make Ahead
Toss salad greens with apples and pomegranate seeds in bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve. If salad is refrigerated longer than 1 hour, dip apples in carbonated lemon-lime beverage before adding to salad to help prevent them from turning brown.
Substitute 1/2 cup chopped PLANTERS Sliced Almonds for the panko mixture.
