Pomegranate Salad with Honey-Cider Vinaigrette

I've had this recipe bookmarked for awhile and finally made it to accompany our pizza dinner while at home. The dressing was very unique, with a strong cinnamon flavor, but I really liked it. Plus, you really can't go wrong with pomegranate seeds or feta! We added some apple slices to the salad, leftover from our goat cheese pizza, and they made a great addition. I recommend this salad if you're looking for a variation from the typical strawberry pecan spinach salad, another one of my favorites.
