Created by Rabbi Mark Hurvitz, this refreshing treat balances out the heaviness and bounty of any celebratory meal, such as a Passover Seder. Its pastel colors, dotted by cocoa nibs and pistachios, reflects bursts of spring in the natural world, and brightens any table.
- Cut the fruit into bite-size pieces and and place in a large serving bowl, preferably glass. Add the pomegranate syrup to taste.
- When ready to serve, sprinkle the cocoa nibs and roasted pistachos over the fruit salad.
