Green salad with pomegranate-lime vinagrette

I was peeking into the refrigerator this morning and realized I still had a few containers of POMwonderful pomegranate juice ( What should I use them for? Hmmm... Chefbliss ( has some fantastic drink recipes, however it is 3pm maybe a little early for drinks! I then remembered that I have a fantastic vinaigrette recipe that I adapted from barefoot contessa, what if I add some POM juice and lime? The results were light and fruity, a perfect spring salad dressing!
