Mango/Pomegranate Salad

I was so excited when I saw pomegranates in the store again! This is such an awesome salad, and it is so pretty and festive for the holidays.
This was served at our Relief Society Christmas Dinner last year.

Mango/Pomegranate Salad

Spring mix or Romaine lettuce or a mixture of both

Equal parts raspberry vinaigrette and balsamic vinaigrette, mixed together (1/2 a bottle of each for a small crowd)

Mango, cut and chopped (Go HERE for a great tutorial.)

Pomegranate Seeds (Tutorial HERE )

Sweet onion, very thinly sliced

Whole almonds, roughly chopped

Mix all of the ingredients together. Toss with dressing to coat salad.

*My notes:

There weren't any actual measurements, so I used a large bag of salad, 1 pomegranate, 1 mango, 1 onion, and about a cup of almonds, and not quite a bottle of the dressing (the 1/2 and 1/2 mix). So, you can adjust the measurements the way you like. Add more mango, more pomegranate, whatever you want!

You can buy pomegranate seeds and already cut mango pieces at Costco. Just in case anyone wants that option! :)

Also, this salad doesn't keep well, it gets soggy after you add the dressing. Next time I make it, I'm not going to toss it with the dressing, I'll let everyone add their own dressing to their salad.

(Sorry about the spacing...still having issues with that!)


  1. You can't go wrong with this combination of mangos and pomegranates! This sounds delicious!! (and I think I may have to pick some up from Costco - just around the corner from me!) :)

  2. I can picture it in my mind, and it looks beautiful! I'm sure it tastes just as good.
    Thanks for the tutorials on cutting those delectable fruits.

  3. I am attracted to Pomegranates - they are just so beautiful! A salad made with them would be delicious and so pretty too! Very Christmasssy :D
