Pomegranate Salad

Pomegranate salad, traditionally known as Dixie salad, is my husband’s family Thanksgiving tradition.  It is so yummy!

If you typically have some kind of fruit salad with your Thanksgiving dinner, try something new this year.

The name, Dixie salad, came about because more than 150 years ago the people in Southern Utah, known as Dixie, made this salad.  In Southern Utah, at Thanksgiving time, the pecans are falling out of the trees and are ready to eat.  Pomegranates are ripe.  And, of course, anywhere you go the apples are ready.  So why not make a salad using these ingredients that are readily available!

Now I love to make salad and eat salad!  You can be creative in the toppings you put on it. The possibilities are endless!

You also need a good salad dressing.  Salad dressing adds a lot of flavor to a good salad.
