Pretty Pomegranate Salad

This recipe is from my book, 101 Things To Do With Gelatin. I think it's pretty tasty, and not your usual Jell-O salad. Since pomegranate is now in season, this just might be THE perfect dish to take to one of your holiday get togethers. I promise you'll get compliments!

Pomegranate Salad
1 large box cherry or black cherry gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 cups cold pomegranate juice (100% juice)
1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
1/2 cup sliced almonds or chopped walnuts (I prefer the walnuts)
1/2 to 1 cup fresh pomegranate seeds

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add cold pomegranate juice. Pour into a 9 x 13-inch baking pan and chill until set, about 3-4 hours. Spread Cool Whip over top and then sprinkle with nuts and pomegranate seeds. Makes around 12 servings.

TIP: If pomegranate isn't in season, just skip the seeds sprinkled over top. It'll still taste great without them.
