Pictureless Pomegranate Salad

This healthy salad is a delicious addition to holiday or winter meals. The fact that it was consumed before photographs could be taken should not prevent my recording the recipe, but it is rather pretty. I made it to suit my dietary needs - no sugar, no dairy, no apples, and lots of nutritious health benefits. For those with high non-sweetened tolerance, the honey and cinnamon can be omitted, and it tastes quite zingy and delicious. The walnuts help to cut the acidity of the lemon, and also add crunch to the sometimes unpleasant chewiness of the pomegranate seeds.

Winter Fruit Salad

Toss fruit:
- Seeds of one pomegranate, precipitated into a dish
- One navel orange, peeled and chopped across sections into bite-size bits
- 1/2 cup walnuts, pieces or chopped

Mix dressing:
- Juice of one lemon
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and/or ginger (optional)

Pour dressing over fruit and nuts and toss again. Chill or serve immediately. Serves 2-4.
