Category: Fruit, Salads

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Delicious apples; diced
  • 1 1/2 c Pomegranates
  • 1/2 c Seedless raisins; boiled
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1/4 c Walnuts; chopped
  • 1/4 c Almonds; chopped
  • 1 1/2 c Cream salad dressing; * see
  • -note

 Directions

Combine all ingredients except cream salad dressing. Mix lightly with the
cream salad dressing. Let marinate for a half hour in refrigerator. Serve
on crisp lettuce leaves and you have a dish fit for the most fastidious of
connosieurs. Some variations have crept into the original recipe and now we
find other fruits being added. Pineapple, bananas, pears and stoned
cherries are common additions. The seedless raisins often are replaced with
fresh or bottled seedless grapes. Plain whipped cream, sweetened, may be
served with the fruit and nut combination. "Dixie Salad" has often proved
just the right dessert for that holiday menu.

NOTES : *Cream salad dressing is whipped cream with a tablespoon or so of
salad dressing added to give a little tang to the salad. The following
recipe was the result of necessary substitutions when a Housekeepers
Convention sponsored by the Utah State Agricultural College in the winter
of 1914-15 - the earliest Extension Home Economics workshops in Washington
County.
