Jewelled autumn fruit salad
Prep 20 mins | Serves 4
6 fresh Medjool dates
250g seedless grapes, washed

Step 1 Peel and remove all pith from oranges and chop into bite size pieces. Place into a bowl. Halve each date and remove seeds, then roughly chop. Remove stems from grapes. Toss dates and grapes through oranges.
Step 2 To prepare pomegranate, hold pomegranate cut-side down over a bowl and using the back of a wooden spoon, gently tap pomegranate to dislodge the seeds.
