De-seed the pomegranate. Cut the pomegranate in half. Stretch the flesh to loosen it up. Over a bowl, place the pomegranate face down on your palm. With a wooden spoon, knock on the back of the pomegranate and the seeds will fall through your fingers into the bowl.
Set the pomegranate aside. We don’t want to mix them with the rest of the fruit as yet as the pomegranate stains.
Remove the stems off the strawberries. Cut them into small cubes and place them in a medium size bowl.
Cut off the ends of the green kiwi fruit and peel them. Cut them into small cubes and add them to the strawberries.
Cut the green grapes in half or thirds, depending on how big they are. Add them to the bowl of strawberries and kiwi fruit.
Gently mix the strawberries, green kiwi fruit and green grapes and divide into 4 portions.
Place half a portion of the mixed the strawberries, green kiwi fruit and green grapes in a stemmed glass.
Add some pomegranate arils on top.
Add the remaining portion on top and add more pomegranates on top.
Then add a generous portion of the Persian fairy floss on the top as the show piece of the fruit salad.
Serve immediately as the fairy floss will start to get soggy.
If you’re not able to source Persian fairy floss, any fairy floss would make a good replacement. It won’t quite have the same effect, especially if you’re draping it down the side of the glass but it will still be super fun!
Any red and green fruit will do for this Christmas fruit salad. Just ensure that they have a good balance of flavours. I do however think the pomegranate is essential for a crunch element and because they are simply so good!
The fruits can all be prepared earlier so you can free up some time when you’re getting other dishes ready. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before serving time so the fruit has time to come to room temperature. Then just top it with the fairy floss.
