Pomegranate and Citrus Salad
Looking for a fresh and light addition to your holiday table? Look no further. This salad combines the freshness of citrus with the tart of pomegranate and a touch of sweet. The perfect way to cleanse a plate or simply lighten the meal.
2 pomegranates, seeded
4 red grapefruit
4 pink grapefruit
2 white grapefruit
½ c. sugar
1 c. fresh mint leaves
Section* all the citrus fruit and add to the pomegranate seeds in a large bowl. In a food processor add sugar and mint leaves. Pulse until the mint is very fine and sprinkle over fruit. Stir and refrigerate for 2-4 hours. Serve chilled.
Any combination of citrus fruit will work for this salad and in the summer when pomegranates are harder to find, raspberries work great as a substitute.
*To section citrus fruit, cut off top and bottom and cut off the peel around each edge, taking away all the white pith. With a sharp knife, cut each section away from the membrane on each side.
