Pomegranate Cashew Arugula Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Pomegranates are one of my favorite fruits but they can be a bugger to clean. I found the easiest and way to clean them is to cut the pomegranate into quarters. Then fill a medium sized bowl with water.  Keep the bowl in the sink and add 1 quarter of the pomegranate and pull the seeds out under water. Make sure you keep it under water. I learned the hard way and shot pomegranate juice all over myself and my white cabinets! The seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the white interior of the pomegranate will float to the top. Easy breezy!
