Healthy and Delicious Winter Fruit Salad

My family has been making this pomegranate and grapefruit salad for as long as I can remember.  My dad originally made this citrus salad with pomelos, a large citrus fruit with a sweet, mild grapefruit flavor.  However, pomelos are almost impossible to find in North Carolina.

I make my version of this pomegranate fruit salad with ruby red grapefruit.  The result is a beautiful deep pink and red salad that is just bursting with flavor!  Plus, with just two ingredients, pomegranate citrus fruit salad is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and Whole30 compliant!

Tips and tricks for making Pomegranate Grapefruit Salad

  • This winter citrus salad can be made two days in advance and is delicious when served cold or at room temperature
  • If you are looking for an easy way to seed a pomegranate, I like this underwater method from Tori Avey
  • Segment the grapefruit over your serving bowl to collect any extra juice
  • If you can find it, add or substitute pomelo or your favorite type of sweet grapefruit for the ruby red grapefruit
