This salad is perfect for fall and winter because pomegranates are in season. Since the summer, I have been trying to pick a “new” fruit or vegetable with my kids. “New” which means we have never bought it, chopped it or cooked it before. So I brought this fruit home and wasn’t sure what to do with it. I searched the internet and decided that my approach would be to remove the seeds in water.
I really enjoyed the combination of sweet and tart in this salad and it was a big hit with my kids who are really not into eating green leaf salads yet. This would make a beautiful salad for serving when company comes over for the holidays.
