"I love pomegranate's but never would have thought to serve them this way. I did substitute pistachios for pecans for a bit of color but kept everything else the same. I will be making this again for Christmas!"

"Nice crunchy-sweet flavor. I did not toast the pecans."

"I love this salad. It's creamy yet has a crunch from the apples and nuts and the burst of flavor you get from the pomegranate seeds is delightful."

"This is so delicious! It takes a while to get all the arils out of the pomegranate, but it's totally worth the time. I added sliced banana to stretch the salad a little, and it was fantastic. I can't wait to put this on the table for the holidays instead of the usual boring fruit salad! I have a feeling I will need to double or triple the recipe... :-)"
