My grandparents grew pomegranates, pecans and walnuts and would send us some each year. Some of my best memories are the days I used to spend with my grandmother learning how to cook with her. Whenever I make this it's like having lunch with my grandmother again. —Wendy Ball, Battle Creek, Michigan

"Yummy salad! I used a Braeburn instead of a Granny Smith and, because of the sweetness of the Braeburn, I omitted the sugar in the dressing. The walnuts and Parmesan were great additions. Will definitely make this salad again."
