Chicken and pomegranate, what a fantastic combination in a salad! The crunch and explosion of flavour that the pomegranate brings is just amazing. Whenever I want to make my regular chicken salad more exiting I always go for the pomegranate effect.

  3. 3. Mix all the other ingredients in a bowl top with the chicken.
  4. 4. Tap the pomegranate with a spoon the back over a big and deep bowl (this is a messy process but highly worth getting those delicious juicy grains out of the shell, also note that pomegranate stains are very hard to get out so use an apron to cover your clothes)

  6. 6. Dress with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and season to taste
