Course Appetizer, Salad, Snack
Servings 4 servings


  • ½ cup 100% pomegranate juice
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 large pear diced (I did not peel)
  • 3 kiwis peeled and diced
  • ½ cup cut grapes cut into ¼s or ⅛s, depending on their size–I used large black grapes
  • 1 large pomegranate arils removed (about 1½ cups)
  • tsp salt
  • 1-2 tsp raw honey to taste (optional)


  • In a small sauce pan, heat the juice, corn starch, cinnamon, and ginger over medium low heat.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until it becomes a thick syrup, about 8 minutes. Remove it from heat and allow it to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, dice your fruit and mix it together in a large bowl. When the syrup is cooled, add it to the bowl of fruit.
  • Add the salt and stir everything until it’s combined.
  • Taste and add 1-2 tablespoons honey, if desired.
  • Allow to chill in the refrigerator before serving.
  • Serve with cinnamon chips. Enjoy!
