Pomegranate Week 2011 : Pomegranate Salad

A couple of weeks ago, my Husband's Cousin  messaged me that she was going to on "Good Things Utah" a couple of days later.  I would have loved to have gone to see the show in person, but alas, due to school commitments & children, I had to watch the show from my comfy couch.

Jan did fantastic as always.  She made this Pomegranate Salad.  I instantly wanted to make it.  So the ingredients went instantly to my grocery list.  In fact, this salad inspired me to find recipes utilizing Pomegranates {which I'll showcase throughout the week}.

This is a semi-super-easy salad to least once you get past the Pomegranate & getting all the granules out.  I, of course, couldn't make the recipe as listed, so I tweaked it my own way.  Want to see how I made mine???

Pomegranate Salad

First, I chopped up 2 good sized Gala Apples.  I love Gala Apples.  I eat an apple everyday at lunch.  That's how much I like them.

Then, I added in some chopped Walnuts.  That's what I had in my freezer.  I figured I should use up something that I had instead of buying something else {like the pecans mentioned in the recipe}.

I then added in a whole Pomegranate.  I took my time getting all the pieces out; I didn't want juice squirting all over the place.

This is where I cheated.  Instead of buying some Whipping Cream & whipping it up, I bought a container of Cool-Whip & dumped it in.  I'm lazy like that :)

And that's that.  I stirred it all together & scooped them into individual glasses for an after-dinner dessert.

This was very delicious!  I can see how one could sit & just eat the entire bowl :)

Thanks for stopping by!
