Holiday Pomegranate Salad

One of the best things about the holidays for me is all the wonderful fruit in season. (I can't even count the number of mandarin oranges I've already snarfed down!) This holiday salad is a great way to incorporate pomegranates, a winter fruit, into your holiday meals. We made it for Thanksgiving this year and it was a big hit! The pomegranates give the salad a tangy flavor - a nice variety your holiday cooking may be needing.

Also, if you've ever shelled a pomegranate before, you may feel a little hesitant about this salad. But, don't fear my friends. Pom Wonderful gives you a great step by step tutorial on how to shell a pomegranate - the easy way. Go here to learn all about it!
