Total Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients:

Dressing (can be made days in advance):

1/3 cup vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 small onion
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 Tbsp. poppy seeds

Salad (make fresh):

1 head lettuce
1 pomegranate, seeded
1 green apple, chopped

2. Pour dressing ingredients into a jar. Add poppy seeds and shake well.
3. Store in the refrigerator.

SALAD:

1. Wash and dry lettuce leaves. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate.
2. Carefully remove seeds from the pomegranate. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate.
3. Just before serving, put lettuce in a serving dish. Add pomegranate seeds. Cut apple into thin strips and add to the salad. Sprinkle some of the dressing on top and toss.

VARIATION:

You can simplify preparation by using store-bought Poppy Seed Salad dressing. (Virginia Brand Vidalia Onion Burgundy Poppy Seed Salad Dressing. This product is OU Kosher-Pareve certified.)

Torah thought: During Rosh Hashanah, it is traditional to eat apples dipped in honey, to symbolize our hopes for a "sweet" new year.
The apple is dipped in honey, the blessing for eating tree fruits is recited, the apple is tasted, and then the apples and honey prayer is recited.

Blessed are you, Lord, our God, king of the universe who creates the fruit of the tree. (Amen)

Take a bite from the apple dipped in honey, then continue with the following: May it be Your will, Lord our God and God of our ancestors that you renew for us a good and sweet year.
