My guests loved the 'Pure' version of the salad. Hope you enjoy it as well.
How to Make Dixie Salad
- Whip cream with sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form.
- Combine pomegranates, apples, pecans (and any additional desired fruit). Gently fold in whipped cream. Garnish with a few pomegranate seeds.
- NOTE: To seed the pomegranate (with as little mess as possible), cut a cross in the base of the pomegranate down to but not into the seeds. Carefully pull the cross open, breaking the pomegranate in half. Gently break sections away from each half, pulling the skin back and turning the pomegranate inside out; gently nudge the seeds from the exposed section. Work over or in water, dropping the seeds into the water as you go. The pithy membrane and bits of skin will float to the surface of the water and can easily be skimmed away leaving intact the juicy kernels.
Later in the pomegranate season, the skin becomes dry and the fruit is hard to break open. Place the pomegranate in water to soak before following the directions above.
