    Fantabulous salad. My sister in law brings this to many events. The pomegranate seeds provide a delightful crunch. My SIL uses the whipped topping and leaves out the nuts. It is my favorite dish at any family function.

    The hulls of the pomegranates were very hard and I was afraid someone would break a tooth, so I didn't serve this salad and threw it OUT!
