Pecan trees are everywhere in my Sister's little town. You can hardly walk down the street without crunching some under your feet. And since it's warm pomegranates grow very well too. Thus the 'Dixie', as southern Utah is often called, in the Dixie Salad. I love the crunchy sweet combination and it feels like I'm eating healthy, although the whipped cream doesn't exactly help in that area. You need a little dairy though, right?
You can combine the ingredients in any proportion you would like. I made a small salad just for myself this time for lunch. So it only had 1 apple, 1 small pomegranate and a handful of nuts. I also used whipped table cream because that is what I had on hand, and not much of it to keep it healthier for me. But I do like a lot of cream on it. You can add some sugar to the cream or use cool-whip as well.
