Original recipe from The Homesteader's Cookbook
Prep Time 20 mins
Course Dessert, Salad, Side Dish, Snack


  • 2 apples, diced finely (I wish I would've had a red or pink one for color!)
  • 2 stalks celery, diced finely
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 orange, diced finely
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 pear, diced finely
  • 6 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp raw honey


  • Cut all the fruit into beautiful “jewel” sized pieces, trying your best to keep the cut consistent in all the fruits.  Then, mix together the orange juice, vinegar, and honey.  Pour this over the diced fruit and allow to marinade for an hour at room temperature.  Enjoy!  Note: I also really, really wanted to top this salad with some toasted almonds, but since we were having steak for dinner, it seemed like an overkill.  But if I were you, I'd totally do the almonds. We had this salad for dinner last night and it was a wonderful, bright note to our plates.  Make it – you'll see what I mean!
