When Autumn breezes bring in the vibrant pomegranate, it is easy to forget its more familiar Fall counterpart, the apple. In abundance at the supermarket all year round (but truly in season later Summer through Fall), the apple's health benefits are easily overlooked. Weight loss, heart health, and metabolic syndrome are just a few issues that apples have the ability to aid with. This super fruit, combined with other seasonal produce like beets, celery, and endive, makes this salad a celebration of Fall flavors.
