I know this might sound a bit strange but it’s really delicious!
I love fresh fruit this time of year, especially melons and bing cherries; however, the taste and crunchiness of pomegranate really appeals to me also. So, I mixed it all together.
You have the sweetness of the cherries and melons combined with the tartness of the pomegranate, a perfect sweet/tart combo! The flavors are really delicious together.
You are probably aware of the many health benefits of pomegranate. If not, check out my March 29, 2010 post.
This is very easy to make. Cut the pomegranate into quarters and submerge in a bowl of water, the seeds separate and sink to the bottom of the bowl making it easy to remove from the skin. Chop the melon into bite-size pieces and you’re ready for a great fruit salad. The only problem may be trying to find them all ripe at the same time. I did and love it!
