For Walnuts:

Add walnuts to a shallow sauté pan with no oil. Cook over medium heat until there is a nutty aroma (about 3 minutes). Add a pinch of salt and turn off heat.

For Salad:

De-seed Pomegranate over a large bowl. Wash greens. Put greens in stainless steel bowl and add a pinch of salt. Thinly slice pears lengthwise on a mandolin.
