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.

Pomegranate Salad

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!

A true Super food — Pomegranates

Pomegranates are a great source of antioxidants, which act as anti-inflammatory agents in your body.  What does this mean for you?  If you are like me, and many other people in this world, and suffer from arthritis, antioxidants will help  with curing arthritis.

Pomegranates also fight cancer, lower blood pressure, fight bacterial infections, improve heart health and memory!

Also, as a helpful reminder make sure to check the ingredients for your heavy whipping cream  You don’t want added sugars or preservatives.

    1. I made Dixie salad for Thanksgiving dinner also. Mine wasn’t as healthy because w would use fruit cocktail which is loaded with sugar and then the fresh fruit. This is a nice healthy one!

    I would love to hear what you think or if you have questions
