Dixie Fruit Salad

This is another side dish that comes from Duane's wonderful Grandma. I've had fruit salad like this before but she's the one who introduced me to the pomegrante version. I love the combination of the tart crunchy pomegranates, the sweet, crisp apples, sliced bananas, and of course the whipped cream. It makes such a difference here if you use real whipped cream instead of cool whip. It takes the salad from okay to delicious! If you like nuts, try adding some chopped pecans. This is a really simple fruit salad that you can tweek to your tastes. My daughter LOVES this salad so when I can't find pomegranates I use grapes. This salad is best eaten right after it is made.
