Antioxidant Fruit Salad

I was told by the grocer at Whole Foods this past week that Pomegranates were not in season and I was disappointed because I wanted to make this salad. Later in the week, I walked into Fresh Market and was surprised to find fresh pomegranates. When is the season for Pomegranates anyway?

I love this healthy salad from Nigella Lawson. It is so easy and I learned a new trick. Nigella slices one pomegranate in half and beats it with a rolling pin. That’s what pops out the seeds. And to think that I use to pick them out by hand.

Bon Appetit!

Antioxidant Fruit Salad
1 Mango, sliced

1 cup blueberries

1 pomegranate

2 teaspoons lime juice

Cut the mango in half around the stone, and then criss-cross the flesh of the mango halves with a knife into 1/2-inch squares.

Push the diced mango flesh outwards and then slice off the squares from the skin into a bowl.

Tumble in the blueberries, then halve the pomegranate and bash out the seeds with a wooden spoon over the mango. Finally squeeze over the lime juice and serve.
