pistachio pomegranate salad

This stuff is so fluffy yum!  Makes a nice, big bowl, so it’s perfect and really pretty for a Christmas party.  Although we make this all year round. I love the crunch of the apples, and the tart burst you get from the arils is so surprising and delicious! Don’t substitute whipped topping for the real whipped cream. It turns out to be too sweet. It’s best served the same day, but it’s not too bad the following day either. If you have any left…..

pistachio pomegranate salad


  • 2 cans pineapple tidbits (20 oz. cans) DO NOT DRAIN
  • 2 small (3 oz.), or 1 large (6 oz.) boxe(s) instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 2 cups whipping cream--whipped into whipped cream
  • 1 bag (10 oz.) miniature marshmallows
  • 2 large Fuji apples--peeled, cored and diced
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate arils (about 1 1/2 pomegranates worth)


  1. In a large bowl, put the pineapple tidbits, including juice. Sprinkle the instant pistachio pudding over the pineapple. Stir well to combine. The mixture will start to thicken.
  2. Whip the 2 cups of cream into a slightly stiff cream. Don't over whip. Fold the whipped cream into the pudding/pineapple mixture.
  3. Fold in the remaining ingredients and refrigerate an hour before serving.
