  3. Whisk dressing together in a mixing bowl until smooth and creamy.  Set aside or place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  4. Add arugula to a large serving platter or bowl, top with pomegranate seeds, pepitas, goat cheese, and charred Brussels sprouts.  Toss with dressing just before serving. *See notes about arugula if prepping ahead.
  5. ENJOY!!

Notes:

*If you would like to prep ahead, wait to add the arugula until just before serving so it doesn’t get too wilted.
