Nutritional values

The spinach covers one third of our daily iron requirements, almonds supply us with unsaturated fatty acids, and pomegranates provide cell-protecting substances.

Serve with slices of bread to make a more filling and extremely tasty meal. You can also serve the salad as a side dish for a meat like lamb or poultry.

If you don't have any pepper you can just omit it - or try a dash of paprika to give it some heat.
 
This looks absolutely divine! If I don't have pepper, what else can I replace it with?
