Have I ever mentioned how much I love pomegranates? I think they're the most beautiful fruit. I've long wondered if those gorgeous, shiny, ruby-like seeds could be made into jewelry of some form, but I'm afraid they would rot on my neck.
The pomegranate is truly the star of this simple fruit salad, which is currently my favorite breakfast and after-dinner dessert option as I remind myself to put down the peanut M&Ms. Making and eating this fruit combination could be the best 10 minutes you spend all day. And bashing the pomegranate is particularly therapeutic in a Dexter sort of way, just beware the splatter.
Antioxidant Fruit Salad
Recipe courtesy of Nigella Lawson and the Food Network
1 cup blueberries
2 teaspoons lime juice
Cut the mango in half around the stone, and then criss-cross the flesh of the mango halves with a knife into 1/2-inch squares. Push the diced mango flesh outwards and then slice off the squares from the skin into a bowl. Tumble in the blueberries, then halve the pomegranate and bash out the seeds with a wooden spoon over the mango. Finally squeeze over the lime juice and serve.
