I came up with this salad when I was asked to bring a fruit salad to holidays and most fruits are out of season. I looked and looked for a fruit salad recipe that didn't involve canned fruit and couldn't find anything that said "Fall". This salad will definitely stay in my "keeper" file!
Fill a large mixing bowl with very cold water to help peel your pomegranate. Slice off the top and score the outside like an orange. Submerge into the cold water and gently pull sections apart, using your thumbs to brush the seeds off the peel. The peels and membranes float which helps to separate them from the seeds. Strain.
Cube the apples and pears.
Add the apples, pears, pom seeds, craisins, golden raisins, and nuts to a large mixing bowl. Pour half the vinaigrette and toss. Add the rest of the vinaigrette a little at a time until everything is lightly coated.
