  • To serve, gently stir pomegranate seeds into fruit mixture. If desired, garnish with orange peel strips. Makes 12 servings.

*

To remove pomegranate seeds, cut the fruit in half just through the skin. Remove the peel and break the fruit into sections. Then use your fingers or a small spoon to separate the seeds from the membrane. Discard the skin and membrane. Handle the fruit in a bowl filled with water; this allows the seeds to float to the top, and the juice won't discolor your hands.
