Dixie Salad is a dish made from cream, apples, pomegranates and pecans. This parfait-like recipe is a wonderful addition to a holiday meal, or a deliciously sweet take on fruit salad.



  • 1 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 cup chopped firm apple
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  1. In a large bowl add the pomegranate, apple, and pecans.
  2. Whip the cream (I like using a Kitchen Aid to do this) until it turns into whipped cream, about 2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar and beat well to combine.
  3. Add the whipped cream to the fruit mixture and fold gently to combine. Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy right away. Garnish with additional fruit and nuts if desired.
  4. Store any leftovers covered in the fridge for up to a day.
