Apple Pomegranate Salad

Last year Thanksgiving was spent with my aunt and uncle down in the Carolinas, and my aunt made a salad very similar to this.  It was very good, but for whatever reason I forgot about it until I saw this recipe extremely similar to it.  I knew I had to try it again!  

Apparently it is a very traditional dish on many Thanksgiving tables, who knew!?  It is a light salad and doesn't make you feel like going into a food coma after eating it.  That would be the turkey's job :)

Apple Pomegranate Salad

1 large Pomegranates 
1 Jonathan, Gala or Jonagold Apple 
1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
3 Tbsp. Sugar 
1 tsp. vanilla 
1/4 to 1/2 cup Roasted Pecans

Cut Pomegranates in half as you would an orange. Over a large bowl turn pomegranate inside out and let the seeds fall into the bowl. Remove all seeds and place them into bowl. Cut the apple into bite sized pieces, no need to peel. Add apple to the pomegranates. Whip Cream until stiff, add sugar and vanilla. Fold cream into pomegranates and apples, sprinkle with pecans. You can also add pineapple tidbits or bananas or mandarin oranges or even mini-marshmallows, but traditionalist only use the 4 ingredients.
