Simple, colourful, and delicious–what more does one need from a fruit salad? All of the credit for this fantastic dish goes to my lovely mother, who threw together this salad for a holiday dinner earlier in December. That specific incarnation of the salad disappeared quickly, but in the days since the dinner, I have discovered that the salad also pairs excellently with plain greek yogurt, or atop waffles or pancakes. If your event is child-free, you could even add a dash of scotch or sherry to the salad for an extra kick.
The only difficult aspect of this salad is seeding the pomegranate. Again, dear readers, my lovely and talented mother has come to the rescue! For a stain and hassle-free pomegranate experience, halve the pomegranate between its two ends/stems, and push the peel back as if you were going to turn the pomegranate inside out. Voilà!
