8bacon stripscooked to just crisp and sliced into thin strips
½cup walnutschopped and toasted
Seeds of one pomegranateabout 1 cup
Toast walnuts by spreading in a non-stick pan on the stovetop over low heat for 15 - 20 minutes. Give the pan a shake every now and again for even toasting. When the nuts are very warm, fragrant, and slightly golden, remove from heat and allow to cool.
Cook bacon until just crisp, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and allow to cool. When cooled, slice into thin strips.
Cut the pomegranate in half, and squeeze the cut halves over a bowl, using a strainer or squeezing through your fingers to keep the seeds from falling into the juice.
Squeeze the pomegranate seeds into another bowl, removing any pulp
Put all ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake vigorously to combine, or use a blender or immersion blender to emulsify it, about thirty seconds. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Divide arugula between 4 plates and add turkey, bacon and walnuts. Scatter pomegranate seeds over each plate and drizzle with vinaigrette.
Keep ingredients separate until serving.
Try cooking bacon in the oven for easy cleanup. Just lay the slices on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer and bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes. You'll have perfectly crisp bacon with no spattered grease.
