Citrus + Pomegranate Salad
Updated: Jan 27
Fruit salad. We all grew up with it. My childhood memories of a fruit salad was a tinned fruit cocktail (with cherries!), sliced banana, vanilla yogurt, and chocolate chips. Not exactly the type of fruit salad I’d make now. Instead, I’m making this easy citrus salad and making the most of winter citrus. Enter this Citrus + Pomegranate Salad - your upgraded version of a childhood fave.
Easy Citrus Salad with Passionfruit and Pomegranate
This grown up fruit salad has sweet, sour, and bitter notes. Fresh citrus like mandarines, tangerines, grapefruit, oranges (whatever you can find!) is paired with sour passionfruit and topped with pomegranate and mint. It’s so easy I don’t think you even need a recipe.
If you’ve never purchased passionfruit, you can find them in large or “ethnic” grocery stores. They are typically deep purple shells with a bright orange pulp with crunchy black seeds. They are ripe when the outer shell looks wrinkly (which is counterintuitive, I know). Sliced them in half and scoop out that delicious flesh. The seeds are perfectly fine to eat as well, in fanct they are a source of omega-3 fatty acids, and a full of fibre as well.
Next time you’re hosting a brunch or dinner party, make this tangy citrus salad as the perfect palate cleanser!
