Great fruit salad.  So beautiful on the plate too.  We don't care for pomegranate so I pitted and halved some fresh cherries.  Delicious.  Tonight I served this along side grilled teriyaki salmon and steamed jasmine rice.  Restaurant quality meal and so easy.  Definitely a keeper recipe.

Love it! If making the night before, I recommend waiting to add the pomegranate arils until just before serving.

Outstanding salad - and don't omit the cayenne! That little bit of heat finishes this salad off so nicely! I've made it 3 or 4 times already - twice for holidays. You can make it the night before and refrigerate it. I've made it with canned pineapple when I couldn't find fresh - not quite as outstanding, but it still works.
