Persimmon & Pomegranate Fruit Salad

Persimmon & Pomegranate Salad

Keeping my theme of making your holiday meals healthy and unique, this recipe is delightful new take on fruit salad.  The colors are magnificent and the flavor is fantastic!  The sweetness of the persimmons are well balanced with the oil in the pecans and the tart pomegranate seeds making this dish a tempting treat for your tastebuds!

Bonus: Nuts contain good-for-you fats, and the pomegranate seeds are packed with more antioxidants and anti-inflamatory agents than most fruit!  Read more about the health benefits of pomegranates.
