Prep the Toasted Walnuts
Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange walnuts on a cookie or silicon sheet in a single layer. Bake for 8–10 minutes, checking frequently. Set aside and let cool.
Prep the Blood Orange Slices
Slice a little off the top and bottom of the blood orange to give two flat edges and create a stable cutting surface. Using the front of the knife, starting at the top slice downwards, following the curve of the fruit. Cut away all the skin and pith, ensuring not to remove any flesh. Lightly wash off the rest of the peel. Roll the orange on its side and use the knife to gently slice the blood orange against the membrane segments. Set aside for your spinach, orange, and pomegranate salad.
Prep the Pomegranate Seeds
Wash the pomegranate before starting. Cut the pomegranate in half exposing the seeds. Place the pomegranate, cut side down, in your non-dominant hand with your fingers spread apart. Place a deep, medium-sized bowl under your hand with the pomegranate. Take a sturdy spatula or a wooden spoon and begin to whack firmly on the top surface of the pom. Give it some good whacks to release all seeds. Repeat for the other side of the pom and set aside the seeds when finished.
Assemble the Spinach, Orange, and Pomegranate Salad
Combine and gently toss the baby spinach, orange, and blood orange slices. Layer the salad with feta cheese crumbles and pomegranate seeds. Garnish with fresh mint and toasted walnuts. Drizzle the CBD-infused salad dressing on top.
