Green Salad in a Cup with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

This weeks salad portion of our meal is a fun green salad. I say fun, because we are making the cup that we will put the salad in. Let's start with the vinaigrette first. We want it to chill in the fridge while we put everything else together.
2 tablespoon Olive Oil
3/4 cup Pomegranate Juice
2 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
Salt & Pepper
2 tablespoon Sugar
2 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
Put all your ingredients in a bowl. Whisk after each addition.
This is what it looks like after all ingredients are in,
and they are all whisked together.
Cover with plastic and refrigerate.

Now, let's make the cups and the salad.
Lettuce, cut in strips
Red Onion, diced
Grape tomatoes
Won Ton Wrappers
Place 1 won ton wrapper in a cupcake pan for each salad cup 
you want to make. This is a regular size cupcake pan.
It is not necessary to spray the pan. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.
Take each cup out, and let them cool.
Fill each cup with a little salad, a tomato, and some 
diced onion. Sprinkle each salad with vinaigrette.
Enjoy your mini salad cups!

I hope you will try these mini salad cups.
They would be great to serve at a party, or a family meal, 
and they are delicious!
