    Pomegranate and spice fruit salad

    Advertisements
    Pomegranates are my DD's fav food - so this is a fruit salad with pomegranate sauce instead of mayo or yogurt to tickle her fancy.

    For the sauce
    1/4 C sugar
    1 tsp cinnamon
    pureed seeds of one pomegranate
    1/4 cup cool-whip or whipped cream (or mayo or yogurt - whatever you'd like. The whipped cream gets a bit runny so yogurt is was I prefer for texture)

    Salad:
    (Everything should be chopped to bite-sized. I do small bite-sized so it's ok for little kids.)
    3 large apples (whatever kind)
    3 12 oz cans of mandarine orange slices - drained (don't have to drain them if it's fresh)
    1 jar of maraschino cherries - drained/whole
    1 bunch of grapes. (If they're big i slice them in 1/2)
    1 pint of strawberries, sliced.
    whole seeds of 1 pomegranate

    Just cut/mix the fruit and puree the sauce in a blender.
    The poms give a bit of a citrus tart to it - my DD loves it and this is usually enough for the entire family to have.

    this sounds fantastic!
    do you think it would change the recipe too much if i omitted the oranges(can't eat them)
    what would you recommend for a substitute?

    Go ahead and leave them out
    you can add more pomegranate seeds - they are a citrus. But I consider the oranges to be just for color and to "add more to it" to make it go further. They really don't give it the taste - the poms and strawberries are what really flavor it. You can add more grapes, too. I usually add one bunch - but if I have to serve a lot I put in 2 bunches.

    My Mom use to make it with bananas and raisins. My sister makes it with chocolate covered raisins and fruitcake crumbs
