Step 1In small jar, combine pomegranate juice, sugar, lemon or lime zest, lemon or lime juice, vinegar, canola oil and pepper flakes. Secure tightly with lid and shake vigorously until well blended.
Step 2Arrange equal amounts of arugula, onions and berries on each of four dinner plates. Shake jar vigorously and spoon equal amounts of salad dressing (3 tbsp/45 mL each) over each plate. Sprinkle evenly with salmon, nuts and top with black pepper. Serve immediately for peak flavours and texture.
Salad dressing may be made up to a week in advance, but the intensity of the pepper flakes will increase slightly.
Per serving: 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) salad and 3 tbsp (45 mL) dressing
