Pomegranate Chicken Salad



Pomegranate Chicken Salad on Croissant

006Last year during pomegranate season I added a couple of my favorite pomegranate recipes, including this one, but I wanted to revisit it again because it is so addictingly good that I have made it about a dozen more times already this year because my trees were so full of pomegranates that even after sharing bags full with all my friends and neighbors, we still have tons to seed and freeze.

Here’s the recipe again.  Try it!  It’s super easy:

  • 13 oz. can chicken breast
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing (adjust to your taste)
  • seeds from one pomegranate
  • 1/2 cup cashew pieces (I like a lot; you could certainly use less)
  • fresh ground pepper

004Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy on your favorite bread or roll.  The pomegranate seeds are a wonderful and unexpected crunch and burst of flavor against the chicken.  I have also tried it with left-over rotisserie chicken, and it worked out great.

If you haven’t discovered the ease of seeding a pomegranate in a bowl of water yet, check out my post on that technique here.
